Wales boss and former Manchester United winger Ryan Giggs has admitted he is fearful of the team that Jurgen Klopp has put together at Anfield.
With Paul Pogba and Jose Mourinho providing more than enough headlines at Old Trafford to keep us all entertained, this is just the latest line from someone associated with the club that proves the Reds are heading in the right direction.
Giggs told Sky Sports: “From 1-11 there’s probably not been a better Liverpool team in the Premier League – when Raheem Sterling, Luis Suarez and Daniel Sturridge were on fire they were really impressive but probably overall it looks like a more balanced team now.
“You’ve got players who’ve been in the team a couple of years and you’ve got young players coming through with experience of Jordan Henderson and James Milner, so it’s a good blend in there.”
Going one better than Brendan Rodgers’ team managed in 2013/14 is, of course, the ultimate aim, and Giggs admitted he is ‘scared’ that the Reds might just do that.
He added: “Liverpool haven’t played well in some games but scraped results, which is actually quite scary because if you’re able to do that, that’s championship form, so not only the swash-buckling three or four goals, but digging out results is what you need to do to win it.”
It’s never a bad sign when a rival comes out and admits they are scared of you – let’s hope that he is proven correct in his prediction come the end of the season.
