The turn of the decade has been a surprisingly difficult one for Liverpool supporters. The club bowed out of the Champions League in a humbling defeat against Atletico Madrid at Anfield. After suffering the first loss in the Premier League against Watford, there was more disappointment in store for the Reds as the 2019-20 season was put on hold due to the ongoing coronavirus UK crisis. On Friday, there was even more bad news for Liverpool supporters after club legend Sir Kenny Dalglish tested positive for COVID-19.
