Liverpool have had some scares over the past few games but never have they looked out of depth. One way or the other Klopp’s men have found a way to win football games.
It’s the ability to win ugly that is the hallmark of serial winners. Liverpool have displayed that in plenty, most recently against Cardiff.
Displaying such unbeatable attitude week after week makes Liverpool the favourites for the Champions League and very worthy of winning the title in case City slip once.
Hero of the 80s Liverpool team Graeme Souness thinks that this team has come a long way.
“If you’re going to be champions you’ve got to deal with the challenges that come along in many different ways,”
I think today they looked like a composed, polished team. They were patient, they didn’t try and force it. It wasn’t a great pitch to play on, playing under a lot of pressure and I thought they were fabulous.
“OK, they weren’t at their slick passing best but they were still a fabulous team today and I think they showed a maturity as well – ‘we believe in what we’re doing, we’re not going to rush this and eventually someone will come up with something for us’ – and that is how it panned out.
“They were very polished today.”
