Liverpool are looking utterly irresistible at the minute. Jürgen Klopp’s side have taken 28 points from their first 10 games and currently sit top of the table six points clear of rivals Manchester City. Over the weekend the Reds dispatched Spurs at Anfield, brushing off an early setback to beat the visitors 2-1. Speaking after the game, Gary Neville compared Liverpool to Sir Alex Ferguson’s Man United.
Jürgen Klopp’s Reds put in a title winning performance at the weekend. They were relentless. Anfield was stunned when Spurs went ahead after only 47 seconds. Heung Min Son’s shot was deflected onto the post by Dejan Lovren and Harry Kane promptly nodded in the rebound unchallenged. It was an incredibly fortunate but well taken goal. From that moment on it was all Liverpool.
After the game Gary Neville was asked whether this team reminded him of other Premier League winning outfits, he told Sky Sports that the sentiment in the crowd is similar to the feeling at Old Trafford during Sir Alex Ferguson’s all conquering years, the fans just know that the team will win. Neville confessed, “I was going to say in the first half about the sides that we (himself and Roy Keane) played in…there is a complete trust in this crowd, [the team] are brilliant to watch…scintillating.”
The ferociousness of Liverpool going forward was singled out for praise from Neville, he continued: “they are relentless and they should win a title playing the football and amassing the points they have”.
Whilst it can’t have been easy for the pundit, the fact that Neville has compared Liverpool to Alex Ferguson’s Man United is another huge endorsement of their title credentials.
