Jamie Redknapp: Liverpool must improve home form to finish ahead of Tottenham
Jamie Redknapp is backing Liverpool to finish ahead of Tottenham Hotspur
Jamie Redknapp has warned Liverpool that they must improve their home form if the Reds want to finish ahead of Tottenham Hotspur in race for Champions League football.
The Merseyside outfit are five points behind fifth placed Tottenham after a 4-1 victory over Manchester City at Etihad Stadium on Saturday evening.
Spurs, meanwhile, trail fourth-placed Arsenal by a point following Sunday’s similarly emphatic 4-1 win against West Ham United at White Hart Lane.
And former Liverpool and Tottenham midfielder Redknapp believes Jurgen Klopp’s side will edge the north London club in the rankings at the end of the season.
“I think Liverpool maybe,” Redknapp told talkSPORT. “But – there is a but – their home form has to improve.”
Liverpool have won their last two Premier League games on the road following victories over defending champions Chelsea and title favourites City.
The Reds are still waiting for their first home win under Klopp after the German took over the reins from Brendan Rodgers in October.
Liverpool host Norwich on Sunday.
