Legend Souness opens up and announces Liverpool ‘have no weaknesses’
Graeme Souness has claimed Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool side have no weaknesses as they chase their first Premier League title in 29-years.
Klopp has amassed a world class side during his time at Liverpool and the Reds are now one of the best sides in world football, as he looks to win the Champions League and League title, with only Manchester City and Barcelona their main threats to both titles.
And Souness was impressed with the patience and composure they showed at the Cardiff City at the weekend, claiming that Klopp’s side have no weaknesses.
“If you’re going to be champions you’ve got to deal with the challenges that come along in many different ways,” he told Sky Sports.
“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.
“It was only a matter of time. When you’re that good as a team and you’ve got that many special players, the threat’s not coming from just one area. It could be a set piece with [Virgil] van Dijk, it could be a piece of magic from one of the front three.
“But the threat comes from so many places that they know, ‘keep a clean sheet, keep doing the things that have got us the results over the last nine months and it will come’ and that’s how they played today.
“I think they’ve got over their nervy moments, they certainly had them against Spurs and a couple of games before that. I think they’ve dropped that now, I think they’re playing with a composure and a belief.
“They should be, they are a team without a weakness. If you’re setting up against them, where do you think you can expose them? I think you’re struggling to come up with any weaknesses in their team.”
