Liverpool started the season well by earning 7 points from their opening 3 Premier League games.
However, after August, the Reds have only earned 5 points from the next 4 PL games and are now 7 points behind the league leaders.
Next up, the Mereysiders will collide against Manchester United and Klopp can forget about winning the title if his team ends up losing the game against the Red Devils.
Football legend Alan Shearer thinks that Liverpool’s title challenge is already over and that the club have no chance of winning the prize this season. The retired England international stated (Coral via Daily Star):
“Going forward, creating chances, they haven’t scored enough goals and defensively they’ve been as poor as ever.”
“Nothing has changed from last season. I was at the game when they played Newcastle. Same old problems defensively, had a lot of the ball in the first half and should have killed the game off.”
“One great goal from Coutinho but other than they were poor going forward. They’ve got no chance of winning the Premier League playing like that.”
Liverpool have already conceded 12 goals in the league this season and only the likes of West Ham and rock bottom Crystal Palace have conceded more. With that poor a defense, there is really no chance that the Reds can win the league.
Not to forget, the Reds failed to win their opening group games in the Champions League as well despite dominating the contests against Sevilla and Spartak Moscow.
Surely, Liverpool supporters will not like the statement made by Shearer that early on in the season. In your opinion, can the Reds bounce back to seriously challenge for the title?
