Liverpool Legend John Barnes thinks premier league table leaders Chelsea can still be caught, as he gives hope to Liverpool’s top four chances.
As things stands now, no one should decide yet that the silverware is all Chelsea’s – as during November and December when Liverpool were still dominating, no one thought they would slump to what they are presently.
But despite their recent struggles and lack of activity in the winter transfer window, Barnes still believes Klopp’s side are still capable of earning a top four spot.
The legend has backed coach Jurgen Klopp and reminded all that there is still a lot of football to be played between now and May.
“I don’t think Chelsea are out of sight but Liverpool need to improve – the title race starts in March.”
“Liverpool can still finish in the top four if everyone gets behind Jurgen Klopp, who is a very good coach.”
“Unfortunately we didn’t get anyone in January. Signings would have helped but it’s not all doom and gloom. We haven’t got a huge squad so with a 14-15 man squad they will be tired.”
“Arsenal, Chelsea and Manchester City all have bigger squads. City can take out [Sergio] Aguero and bring in [Gabriel] Jesus.” He told the London Evening Standard
Considering how good Liverpool started the season, top four is still very much the expectation. But of course, there is now serious competition – especially from Manchester United – so Klopp’s men needs to work harder to get what they want.
