The first two months of the new millennium saw mixed results for the Reds, but luckily for them many of the teams around them dropped points as well, meaning that by mid February they were third in the league and just six points behind leaders Manchester United, who had a game in hand. There now appeared to be a realistic chance that the Reds might finally be able to end their 10-year wait for the league title.
Three successive draws followed in March, then came a five-match winning run which lifted them to second place by 16 April. However, Manchester United now had an 11-point lead at the top of the table with just five games remaining, and needed just five points from those remaining games to be certain of retaining the league title. However, Liverpool still had something to play for, as the top three places in the Premier League now meant Champions League qualification. Competition for second and third place was still fierce, with Arsenal, Leeds United, Chelsea and Aston Villa all in close contention.
However, the season ended with a disastrous run of results. A goalless draw at Goodison Park in the Merseyside derby was followed by a 2-0 defeat at Chelsea. Emile Heskey's first game against old club Leicester on 3 May was a disaster as the East Midlanders came away from Anfield with a 2-0 victory. A goalless draw against Southampton followed, and on the final day of the season - 14 May - the Reds travelled to a Bradford City side battling it out with Wimbledon to avoid the last relegation place.
An early David Wetherall goal gave Bradford a 1-0 win over the Reds, who surrendered a Champions League place and were forced to settle for a place in the UEFA Cup instead. The result also relegated Wimbledon - who, 12 years to the day, had beaten the Reds in one of the greatest FA Cup final shocks of all time.
