Liverpool have had a solid start to their Premier League season. Despite all of their ups and downs they are still joint top of the table and they’ve come through a lot of tough ties unscathed. Such is the level of performance we’ve seen from the Reds, ex-Man United star Paul Parker has tipped Liverpool to retain the Premier League title.
Tricky start for Reds
Liverpool have faced some difficult ties and circumstances this season.
Jürgen Klopp has had to take on the unknown entity of Leeds United early on, whilst also facing Mikel Arteta’s much fancied Arsenal.
The German also had to visit Frank Lampard’s Globogym-esque Chelsea side early on. He took nine points from this tricky trio of games.
The Reds have also earned a point at the Etihad and should’ve won at Goodison Park, denied only by an all time howler from the refereeing staff.
Despite the injuries and the tough fixtures, Liverpool are still joint top of the league on points – tied with Jose Mourinho’s Spurs on 20.
Paul Parker tips Liverpool for Premier League
Ex-Man United star Paul Parker has tipped Liverpool to retain the Premier League this season.
The retired defender racked up over 100 appearances for the Red Devils during his career at Old Trafford.
Now a regular columnist for Eurosport, the ex-footballer wrote:
“[Liverpool are] playing in the same kind of fashion as last season, it’s not rolling the same as it was because opposing teams are building up not to allow them to run away with it, but still you can see the quality.
“If there was a side I can see winning the league at this moment in time, it’s Liverpool. They’re not hanging in, sitting back, they’re winning games and positive in every area of the park.
“They could go out there and compete against any team with that side they had out [against Leicester City].”
What RTK has to say
He’s got a sensible head on him.
Paul Parker tipping Liverpool for the Premier League makes sense given the level of performance we saw at the weekend, coupled with the fact that we are still down a number of key players.
The Reds will be anxious to get the likes of Thiago and Trent Alexander-Arnold back into the side so that we can see just what this side is fully capable of.
As long as we can keep getting over the line, the Reds shouldn’t struggle to retain their crown.
