Liverpool is finally going to experience the benefit of the break of mid-season throughout the next month. The Red was knocked off from the FA Cup in the third round in the month of January. This was not good for anyone who was looking for a win in the FA Cup. However, it offered them an advantage.
Liverpool has breaks in their calendar which they can use for their own benefit, namely training in warm weather. This is stark opposition to Manchester City. Their progress in 4 competitions has packed their schedule tightly.
Nevertheless, Liverpool had disappeared to Spain. It seems like they had missed out on some momentum in the month of December. This sacrifice is going to help in their run-in. This can be thought of as pre-season. As their rivals play one ten-month season, Liverpool is efficaciously cutting into two. This automatically meant that they have the time to concentrate on their recuperation and fitness, instead of intense match preparation. The time of Christmas can be pretty draining and later on, there is little time to recuperate.
The other prime European league break off for only 2 weeks for allowing for rest prior to the second half of the season. Due to the circumstance, Liverpool has managed to do it, too. The benefit is not going to be seen right away. As a matter of fact, the team of Jurgen Klopp has dropped points. The idea is that they will head to the latter half of the season without being exhausted.
