After drawing against Leicester City and West Ham, Liverpool are currently 2nd in the league with 62 points as they have played one game less than 1st placed Manchester City (62 points).
The Reds are preparing to host Bournemouth on Saturday, February 9th.
Gary Neville believes Liverpool ‘s players must learn to cope with questions about the pressure of the title race and suggested that such interrogation had “clearly rattled” Reds stars this week. (via Mirror)
“The fans are right to be annoyed at calls that Liverpool are already bottling it and are feeling the pressure. However, that is the question they will keep facing,” Sky Sports pundit Neville wrote .
“When you haven’t won a title and you drop points you face questions about pressure. When you’ve won a title or two and drop points then you face questions about complacency. That’s how it works.
“However, it is a fair question. Liverpool were still underdogs up to Christmas and they got through January, but now it has become real for them and you can see it has had an impact.
“Post-match on Monday, the players bit at questions about pressure, it clearly rattled them and it showed.
“Those questions do annoy you, but never show they annoy you – that’s a complete no-no in a title race. Just bat them off and move on. Don’t give anyone any excuse to think the pressure is getting to you.”
