Graeme Souness says the will to win that got Liverpool three points against Spurs won’t win the title for the Reds.

The former Liverpool midfielder believes that Jurgen Klopp’s side needs to improve in order to win the Premier League title ahead of Manchester City.

“Will to win, that’s what won them the game. They weren’t at their best today,” said Souness.

“They just dug out a win, sometimes you have to do that. In the end it was a scruffy win but they were determined.

“They can’t keep relying on people making mistakes – Lloris has gifted them today. That will to win will not win you the league – they have to get back to being a bit classier.”


I must say that I believe Liverpool need to improve in order to ensure they win the title but the rugged side we are now seeing at Anfield is far better than the open, expansive side we saw last season.

Liverpool are now playing with the maturity of a title-winning side. They are demonstrating incredible composure in very tough situations that has been missing for years.

If the Reds win the title it won’t be because of the classy football we know they can play but because of the late goals scored when they were playing poorly.

Everton at home, Fulham away and Spurs at Anfield are all great examples of how Liverpool dug out wins when they really ought to have dropped points.

If the title is won by a point or two the likes of Origi will be remembered for as long as the current generation of supporters is alive.
