This is Liverpool’s moment of truth – is history repeating itself or will Jurgen Klopp end the club’s longest wait for a ­trophy in half a ­century?

It’s seven years since they needed the silver polish at ­Anfield when Kenny Dalglish lifted the League Cup.

But two years ago, Klopp was in the hunt for three trophies in ­January – and they all went up in smoke.

As well as a two-legged League Cup semi-final defeat by ­Southampton, Liverpool were knocked out of the FA Cup by Wolves (sounds familiar) and dropped vital points in the title race against Sunderland, Swansea and then, in early February, at Hull, tailing off to finish 17 points behind eventual champions Chelsea.

At face value, a narrow 2-1 ­defeat by title rivals Manchester City and going out of the FA Cup with a much-changed team at Wolves does not r­epresent a real blip.

Not since the seven-year gap between Bill Shankly’s titles in 1966 and 1973 have the Kop craved a trophy for so long, as Klopp – who has had near misses in three major finals with ­Liverpool – will be only too aware.

This time, I believe Klopp’s in the title race for the long haul.
