Liverpool enjoyed a memorable season, scoring 101 league goals; the highest number of goals scored by a Premier League runner-up and also the fourth highest number of goals ever scored in the Premier League, as of 2020.[3]

Luis Suárez finished as the league's top scorer with 31 goals, winning the Premier League Golden Boot as well as the PFA Players' Player of the Year, while Daniel Sturridge was the league's second highest scorer with 21. Steven Gerrard topped the assists with 13.

Liverpool had a pre-season dominated by speculation about whether Luis Suárez would leave the club. Suárez had served four matches of a ten-match ban for biting Branislav Ivanović in the previous season[4] and Arsenal reportedly agreed terms and offered £40,000,001 for the player based on a rumoured £40 million release clause in Suárez's contract.[5] Suárez stated he would like to leave the club[6] and was then told to train away from the first-team squad.[7] On 8 August, Liverpool owner John W. Henry stated that Suárez would not be allowed to leave the club.[8]

A Simon Mignolet penalty save on the opening day gave Liverpool the first of three 1-0 victories to begin the season. A subsequent draw and loss saw Liverpool in fifth place on the table when Suárez completed his ban. From the next match until the end of the season Liverpool would average 2.9 goals per game. They were top of the table at Christmas before back-to-back 2-1 losses at Manchester City and Chelsea.

A 5-1 win over Arsenal on 5 February featured four Liverpool goals in the opening 20 minutes and was to be the first of an 11-game winning run that included Liverpool beating their title rival, Manchester City, on 13 April, in the same week as the 25th anniversary of the Hillsborough disaster. A subsequent mid-week Manchester City draw meant Liverpool would win the league if they got ten points from their remaining 4 games.

Their next match was a 2–3 away win to Norwich City that secured Liverpool's pre-season aim of qualifying for the 2014–15 UEFA Champions League. But a 0–2 home defeat by Chelsea in a match marred by a Steven Gerrard slip that led to Chelsea's key goal, and Chelsea's "comically brazen" time-wasting[9] (unpunished until the 93rd by Martin Atkinson, despite José Mourinho telling his players he wanted "at least two bookings for time-wasting before half-time"[10]), meant that Manchester City would win the league if they won their remaining three games.[11][12]

Manchester City had a superior goal difference of +59 versus +50, and Liverpool's attempts to reverse City's 9 goal advantage in their penultimate game against Crystal Palace[13] saw their 0-3 lead pegged back to a 3-3 draw. Liverpool finished in second place, by two points, after they defeated Newcastle United on the final day. This represented the closest the club had come to winning the league title since 1990.

Steven Gerrard has spoken of his anguish over the slip in the pivotal Chelsea game, saying it was "even tougher than what people probably think it was".[14] The other key moments cited as playing a part in Liverpool falling short of the title include Raheem Sterling incorrectly having a goal disallowed at Manchester City's Etihad Stadium despite being on-side by over a metre;[15] Kolo Touré passing the ball to Victor Anichebe, allowing West Bromwich Albion to earn a draw on 2 February;[16] and Jordan Henderson's 93rd minute sending-off (and three-match ban) in the home game versus Manchester City, which Liverpool's manager Brendan Rodgers thought was "a huge miss for us" because Liverpool "couldn't replace Jordan".[17][18][19]

The season was the first since 1995-96 season without Jamie Carragher.
