Steve McManaman: Liverpool need to sort themselves out

Steve McManaman runs the rule over 'terrible' Liverpool ahead of 3-0 win against Man City

Steve McManaman has blasted Liverpool for a terrible 2015/16 season.

The Reds have struggled to find any consistency under Jurgen Klopp since the former Borussia Dortmund manager took over the reins from Brendan Rodgers in October.

Liverpool are facing an uphill battle to rescue a spot in next season’s Champions League, whilst the Reds lost to Manchester City on penalties in the League Cup final at Wembley on Sunday afternoon.

The Merseyside outfit did manage to exact revenge on the Citizens thanks to a 3-0 win against Manuel Pellegrini’s side on Wednesday night at Anfield.

Speaking ahead of the Premier League game, McManaman didn’t hold back in his assessment of the 18-time English champions this season.

“Liverpool are in 11th. They’ve just lost a cup final,” McManaman told BT Sport.

“The fact that they’re 11th and plus two goal difference is terrible as well. They need to show some consistency and sort themselves out.”

Liverpool make the trip to Crystal Palace in their next Premier League game at Selhurst Park on Sunday afternoon.
