Liverpool have been in bad form of late. The Reds have failed to win at Anfield since before Christmas. They were looking like retaining their title when we were all tucking into our turkey, then the magic wore off and injuries took their toll. Roy Keane has labelled Liverpool ‘bad champions’; he’s talking nonsense.
Liverpool lose at home again
These past couple of months have been difficult for the Reds.
Jürgen Klopp’s side have failed to win at home since before Christmas.
Since then we’ve seen the Reds lose to Brighton, Burnley and Man City.
They’ve also drawn with West Brom and Manchester United.

It has been a difficult run and one which is obviously rooted in the severe injury crisis the club is playing through.
Roy Keane slams Liverpool
This weekend saw the Reds battered 4-1 by Manchester City at Anfield.
The score line far from reflected the game as the fixture turned on a couple of minutes of madness from the Reds’ keeper.
Speaking on Sky Sports after the game Roy Keane slammed Liverpool:
“We spoke before the game – they are making a lot of excuses. For me, they are bad champions.
“You could say that this is a one-off, it’s a freak season, it’s Corona. Just get on with it. You’re the champions, you’re Liverpool Football Club.
“Keeping performing like that and it will be another 30 years before you win the title.”
Keane totally wrong
Roy Keane may believe Liverpool are making excuses but where was this energy for Man City last season?
Pep Guardiola lost one big player and the wheels came off.
This season the Reds have lost all three of their centre backs for the campaign, they’ve been without a star forward for two months and their other summer signing missed 10 weeks of action.
This has been an unprecedented injury crisis and yet we are still just 10 points off.
Meanwhile Man City, when defending the title last term, finished 18 points behind the Reds and even then the gap only narrowed because our momentum was halted halfway through the season.
We won’t be paying much more attention to Keane’s bizarre ‘insight’.
