Pundit: What Liverpool need to change to become champions
Dion Dublin has offered Liverpool some advice on their title bid
Liverpool need to stop giving their opponents so many chances to score if Jurgen Klopp’s side are going to become Premier League champions, says Dion Dublin.
The Reds lost 3-2 to Premier League strugglers Swansea City at Anfield on Saturday afternoon after Gylfi Sigurdsson scored a 74th-minute winner.
Fernando Llorente broke the deadlock with a close-range finish before the ex-Juventus and Sevilla striker powered a header past Simon Mignolet four minutes after his opener.
Brazil international Roberto Firmino managed to get Liverpool back into the game with a header of his own before the South American steered a superb volley past Lukasz Fabianski in the Swansea goal.
However, Klopp’s side couldn’t push on and claim three points as Swansea scored a third through Sigurdsson as the Welsh outfit made all three of their shots on target count at Anfield.
Speaking to BT Sport after Liverpool’s 3-2 loss to Swansea, Dublin explained what Liverpool need to change to have any hope of winning an elusive Premier League crown.
“Liverpool do it all the time. They give the opposition too many chances to score goals. Swansea had three chances, hit the target three times and scored three games,” Dublin said.
“Liverpool have to nullify that if they want to be champions again and do well in the Champions League. Going forward, they’re exceptional. You can’t keep conceding goals and losing to teams that you should be walking over.”
