Liverpool have left Man City worried as Manchester United plunge to new depths


Liverpool picked up another crucial win at home to West Ham United on Saturday which was great to see.

In my opinion, we haven’t played as well as we could in the last month, but we’re keeping clean sheets and getting results, which is a really good sign, because if people like (Sadio) Mane click on speed, someone might get a stick.

Everything bodes well. corn. We are still top scorers and we have the top three scorers in the league in Mane, (Mohamed) Salah and (Diogo) Jota.

We always win games, but we really only do it in spurts in games. This shows you the quality of the manager and the team.

Whether the nervous atmosphere of Saturday will be reproduced depends on how we play. If we try our luck, it’s not a problem.

If we play our best, I think Man City will find it difficult to live with us. If we keep winning games, and Chelsea too, the weight of that could bring them down. Arsenal are also improving.

When I think of fluidity, I think of the team I played for. We always played the same team week after week. You would become telepathic to each other’s movements.

This team doesn’t have that consistency because there are so many games and it’s so intense. You get a different midfield almost every game, but everyone comes in and does their job.

As for the title, I prefer to have the points in the bag, but if you keep chasing and scoring, that worries the leaders. It adds a bit of pressure. So we were brilliant at doing what we did.

We just have to keep getting the three points and if and when City break, be ready to capitalize.

Trent and Robbo are the company

Trent Alexander-Arnold is brilliant. You always have people interrogating him, which is ridiculous. If you are asked to go on the offensive, like him, it is practically impossible to be in a defensive situation all the time, to cover. That’s why we have players like (Ibrahima) Konate.

I thought Konate and (Virgil) van Dijk were great at the weekend and they had to be to let our two full-backs do what they do.

I thought the two full-backs were our best players. Andy Robertson had a great game.

Alexander-Arnold too, with his cross shot on goal. Any ball on the face of the box, Mane and Jota know how to get into the right areas for tap-ins.

City a top team but United in shambles

I’m still impressed with Manchester City. You couldn’t help but be. They’ve spent billions on the club, sitting where they are now.

Kevin De Bruyne is such a great player. Just a real footballer and they have other players who can hurt you.

You can say it’s a fantastic team with a fantastic manager, but so are we.

As for Manchester United, they are struggling where they are at the moment. It always had to happen when Alex Ferguson quit his job.

I think he saw the cracks happening and it was the right time for him to come out. An aging team, an aging team and an aging field.

They are now light years ahead of Liverpool and City. Long may it continue.

I never thought in my life that United would be as bad as them with the amount of money they always spend.

They are like Liverpool. They are massively global. But it’s not a football club, it’s a PLC.

To see where they are now – and the stock market has crashed on them a bit – they’re probably as low as they can get, I think.

When you buy superstars like (Edinson) Cavani and (Cristiano) Ronaldo, you need masons. It’s an old saying, but they don’t have them.

But on this day they can still be very dangerous and Liverpool will have to beware of them when they face them at Anfield.
