I was actually going to say that Liverpool today showed why I think they'll be in a real battle for the title... I think they have the goals in them to really challenge. If they get a good start then they will be there or thereabouts.
I feel the exact opposite. Liverpool do not have what it takes to close out games on current performance. They cannot control the tempo of the game. They go only one speed that is the top gear. Will be found out later in the season.
But then they could not keep it st 4-1 could they. It felt like arsenal were the better team in the last 20 odd minutes. That is what is going to cost them imo.
After one game, Rich?
Liverpool have too many poor players who always make the starting line up to be considered title candidates. And what Klopp did stunk of an LVG decision in regards to Milner at left back. Sure Liverpool fans recoiled, much like what we did when Young was being played at left back. If they had no faith in Moreno, they shouldn't have sold Smith to Bournemouth, who hasn't made a bad start for them. Milner anywhere is limited, but at left back, he's a nightmare.
At the start of the season Liverpool were one of six or seven teams competing for a top four finish. Nothing we've seen thus far has changed that. Still very early days though.
