Unbeaten in the league and Champions League. Liverpool deserve at least more attention.
“I look at teams like Chelsea, Manchester City and Manchester United who have spent money but Liverpool’s starting XI is as good as anyone – if not the best,” Peter Crouch told BT Sport.
“The reason people aren’t talking about them is because they haven’t gone out and spent money on a big player like Romelu Lukaku like Chelsea have. But their starting XI is as good as anyone.”
After previous season, when Liverpool suffered many injuries, many would think that the Reds would go out and make some big transfers during the summer transfer window. However, in the summer when Chelsea welcomed Romelu Lukaku back, or when Cristiano Ronaldo unexpectedly returned to Manchester United or when Manchester City paid £100 million for Jack Grealish , the Reds only made one signing as they welcomed Ibrahima Konate from RB Leipzig. The 22-year-old centre back has so far made just two appearances.
During the last season, Jurgen Klopp’s side finished 3rd in the league and they reached the quarter-finals of the Champions League but suffered a defeat to Real Madrid.
Some would call this season a revival season for the Reds and the most eye catching thing about this season is that Klopp has remained faithful to his team. The Reds boss hasn’t done much changes and that has proven to be effective. However, it doesn’t seem like that the football world is talking about Liverpool and the squad they have, that much.
The Reds are currently second in the Premier League table, however, they are the only side yet to suffer a defeat in the league. Liverpool are also currently leading their group in the Champions League with two wins in two games. They have overall scored 25 goals this season and conceded 9 goals. It is early to say, but just by looking at their results, the Reds could finish this season with one or two trophies.
