We are in a very, very different place to our traditionally biggest rivals Manchester United right now.
While Liverpool won the Champions League in 2018/19 and are well placed to have another good run in Europe’s biggest competition next season, United failed to qualify after a miserable end to the Premier League campaign.
United’s two most expensive players, Paul Pogba and Romelu Lukaku, want to leave – and to make matters worse for them – Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is now being undermined by senior members of the squad.
According to ESPN, many of United’s foreign players are baffled by the Norwegian’s fitness-first training methods that lack tactical nous or strategy.
A source close to the dressing room told ESPN his sessions are ‘too British’ and basically, ‘just running, running, running’!
While United are flailing, we’re not especially worried about Arsenal – who seemingly don’t have the money to fix their defence – or Chelsea – who have Frank Lampard in charge and a transfer ban, having sold Eden Hazard…
Spurs have invested well in Tanguy Ndombele, and will be the closest challengers to ourselves and Manchester City.
But realistically, there seems a large gap between the sides managed by Pep Guardiola and Jurgen Klopp and the rest.
Many Reds are disappointed by our lack of transfer activity, but it’s important to realise that we’re already in a far stronger position, both on and off the field, than everyone else in the top-six bar City.
