A day doesn’t seem to go by now in which someone tries to discredit what Liverpool are doing this season.
If it’s not opposition fans or bias journalists, it now appears commentators, who are meant to be fairly impartial, like Jeff Stelling are taking a pop.
Stelling referred to us as “lucky Liverpool” and club legend Phil Thompson was having none of it – saying that it’s “absolute rubbish” to suggest it’s simply down to luck.
Take a watch of the video below (via Sky Sports):
"It's not lucky Liverpool…" 🔴
Jeff Stelling and Phil Thompson go at it!
