Liverpool are in the semifinals of the FA Cup, quarterfinals of the Champions League and are sitting second in the Premier League table.
It is the best time to be a Liverpool fan across the world. With only a few weeks left in the season, the Reds are in contention to win all the trophies they are participating in this season. Liverpool are in the semifinals of the FA Cup, quarterfinals of the Champions League and are sitting second in the Premier League table to Manchester City. Not to mention Jurgen Klopp’s side have already won the Carabao Cup title, beating Chelsea in a thrilling penalty shootout. They could very well end the season with four trophies if things go their way.
But for that to happen, Liverpool have to overcome a difficult April, which Thiago Alcantara describes as one of the most “exciting” months of his trophy-laden career. The Spaniard, who has won multiple titles with Bayern Munich and Barcelona, cannot wait to be a part of the important April ahead of him.
“The other day I was talking with some friends about it and I never had, in the years that I have been involved in football, I never had a month so exciting like this with such important and exciting matches every three days. So it will be amazing,” he told Liverpoolfc.com.
“Well, it’s not the most exciting month of my career [but] for sure it is exciting because you are competing against the best, in the best competitions as well, but also because it reminds you that we are in finals. It looks like a World Cup, a European Cup, where every game is a final. With that we are in a one-mission mood and we are there.”

Having tasted success already in the form of the Carabao Cup, Thiago feels the domestic cup victory gave them a lot of confidence. Asked whether is it a case of trying to enjoy this position they are in, Thiago replied, “Sure, I think the Carabao Cup gave us much more confidence than we had before. We had high stakes to win the final, we won it and the guys were incredibly happy and confident as well with the performance, with the whole tournament that we made. But also it is important to arrive in this moment of the season and be ready for the finals that we have.”
Liverpool are just a point shy of Manchester City in the Premier League table. If the Reds win Saturday’s match against Watford, they could temporarily go top of the table. Asked whether that would change the dynamic in the title race, the Spaniard said, “No, I don’t think so. I don’t think to see us on top before City plays would be a boost. No, it’s just that we are in a moment where every three points count and we are really glad to arrive at this position and fight and depend on us.”
