Liverpool Fans won’t Like Statement Made by this Football Legend

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?

  1. RED PHIL says:

    Can’t argue that we won’t win the league. Any team who, on recent form, concedes almost two per game whilst scoring one is laughable. City, United, Chelsea and Spurs play the likes of Newcastle and Burnley and score four without conceding. City’s goal difference is 20+ whereas ours is ONE. Any team knowingly going into a season without a good defence is asking for trouble and any team going into a season with a midfielder as the preferred attacking option is going to win zilch. Kane, Aguero, Morata and Lukaku can each get 30+ . . . Firmino would need to up his form to get double figures!!!
    There is only one person responsible for this . . . the manager. Chopping and changing the same failed defenders – but always with the same unsatisfactory result – is going to achieve very little and continually swapping three average keepers is not going to turn one of them into a Ray Clemence.
    Sorry, poor management . . .
