Liverpool – quite literally – couldn’t have had a better start to the Premier League this season, as the Reds have taken 21 points from seven games.
Manchester City aren’t far behind us, on 16 points, and it’s likely that us and the Citizens will stay within touching distance from each other all season.
Even with Adrian between the sticks, Liverpool have only conceded five goals in the seven games – the best defence in the Premier League, with City have seen seven go past them.
And it’s this that former Everton manager David Moyes thinks will be the key difference between the Reds and the Citizens come the end of the season.
“I thought they [Liverpool] were a very good team last year and they are this year as well,” he told beIN Sports. “I think keeping the front three fit [is key]; [Roberto] Firmino for me looks so important to the team.
“But they look to me as if they have got the strongest defence. And because of that I think that gives them the edge.
“I think Man City are giving teams some real good opportunities. I don’t see it quite so much with Liverpool.”
The Scot is right in that our defensive is probably pound-for-million-pound better than City’s, but that was also the case last season, and we didn’t win it then.
But the squad seem to carry themselves differently this season – almost like they’re worthy to be walking the Premier League thus far.
Let’s hope it continues and Moyes is right!
