Jamie Redknapp believes Liverpool may not reach top four

Jamie Redknapp warns that there is no easy remedy as the defending champions Liverpool have lost six of their last nine games in the league.

According to former Reds midfielder Jamie Redknapp, due to their dramatic dip this season, Liverpool securing a top-four finish in the Premier League will now be a disappointment.

Liverpool’s title defence has been seriously hindered by injury concerns, with captain Jordan Henderson the first to go down.

“Teams have found a way,” Redknapp told Sky Sports’ Pitch to Post Preview podcast.

“When West Brom came to Anfield, they sat back and let Liverpool get crosses into the box, and because they haven’t got that focal point of a big striker – you end up crossing the ball for the sake of it.”

“Liverpool have struggled, especially when they go a goal behind, to find the answer.”

“It will come, of course, it will come, but right now everything Liverpool do feels difficult, when you’re in a team struggling for form, even the basics are not quite happening.”

“They might not finish top four. It wouldn’t be a surprise – it’s actually more of a surprise if they did finish top four in the form they’re in.”

“I don’t know what they’re going to end up with as their centre-back pairing at the moment. Henderson [being out] is terrible news. They’re not a team that can keep going through these partnerships.” 

“There’s nothing to be scared of about Liverpool right now. This isn’t a short fix. Liverpool’s results up until the end of the season are going to be up and down.”
