It’s an international break weekend and you know what that means, that’s right, it’s time to check in with everyone’s favorite former Liverpool player Steven Gerrard and ask him what he thinks about the current state of his boyhood club.
“They have been brilliant for a while.” Gerrard told the team website. “If you go back over the last couple of years, when Jürgen finally got his team and his philosophy across, I’ve really enjoyed watching them.
“I always think they’re going to win, no matter who they’re playing against, whether it’s in the Champions League or whether it’s a top-of-the-table clash, I always fancy Liverpool as favourites now.
“With the front three and the form they’re in, they are unplayable at times. Obviously Van Dijk has been a really big [piece] of the jigsaw, the ‘keeper, and the rest around them are not bad either!
“They are great to watch and it’s brilliant from a fan point of view to see them sitting top of the league. But I’m sure Jürgen is thinking the same thing as me: take the next game as it comes, keep pushing and try to win your next one.”
Hard to disagree with anything Liverpool’s former captain said. Just don’t say, “don’t let this slip,” Steven.
