Can Liverpool Build on their solid start to the new Premier League season?
Share This Article:
It wasn't exactly vintage but Liverpool's 1-0 win over Brighton on Saturday gave Jurgen Klopp's side a third win from as many games, putting them as the early season table toppers, albeit on goal difference. It's important to remember Liverpool are not the only side who have gained maximum points so far. Despite a summer where they became the first ever Premier League side not to sign a single player, Spurs' 3-0 win over Manchester United meant they also have 9 points, a total matched by both Chelsea and Watford. Much of the talk in the summer was that it'd be Liverpool who would be the main title challengers to Manchester City and even though it is very early days, the reds already have a 2 point advantage over their Manchester rivals. Arguably, Liverpool
are yet to really face a stern test, having easily seen off West Ham on the opening day of the season before seeing off Crystal Palace and Brighton, both of which were tight affairs.
Whilst the usual attacking, 'rockstar' football might not have been apparent in the last couple of games, what can be said is, for the first time in the Klopp era, Liverpool have a back four which can breed confidence to the rest of the team and is able to be much more solid away from home.
