Jamie Redknapp predicts where Liverpool will finish
The former Liverpool midfielder says Jurgen Klopp's side are stumbling over the line in the top-four race
Jamie Redknapp described Liverpool as stumbling over the line in the top-four race.
The Reds started the Premier League weekend with their top-four fate in their hands after a 1-0 win against Watford at Vicarage Road on Monday night.
Liverpool, though, handed the initiative back to Arsenal and Manchester United in the hunt for a Champions League spot after a stalemate with Southampton on Sunday.
James Milner’s penalty effort was saved by England international Fraser Forster in the second half as Liverpool wasted the chance to extend their lead in third place to three points.
Liverpool have collected 10 points from a possible 15 in their last five Premier League games, including a shock 2-1 loss to Crystal Palace at Anfield last month.
Speaking to Sky Sports about Liverpool’s performances in the concluding weeks of the Premier League season, Redknapp was critical of the lack of personality in the Reds team.
“It does feel like they’re trying their best to throw it away. The last three home performances haven’t been good enough,” Redknapp said.
“At the moment, if they get in the top four it will be like they’re stumbling over the line rather than playing with any real personality or pride in how they’re playing.”
Liverpool finished in eighth place in their first season under Klopp in 2015-16.
