Paul Ince claims Liverpool’s title rivals are jealous of Jurgen Klopp’s attack
The former Liverpool midfielder says some of the Reds' title rivals would love to have Jurgen Klopp's attack
Paul Ince has claimed that Liverpool’s title rivals are jealous of Jurgen Klopp’s attack.
The Reds have scored 12 times in their opening six Premier League games but their goal haul could be far great if Klopp’s side were more clinical.
Liverpool have also netted nine goal in four Champions League fixtures to prove their impressive attack can cause problems in Europe’s top club competition.
The Merseyside outfit made 16 chances during their 1-1 draw with Spartak Moscow but Klopp’s men paid the price for wastefulness in front of goal.
Only Manchester City and Manchester United have scored more goals than Liverpool in the 2017-18 Premier League campaign so far.
Liverpool will make the trip to Newcastle United in the Premier League on Sunday before the Reds host Manchester United at Old Trafford on Saturday 14 October.
Former England international Ince believes Liverpool’s title rivals would be delighted to create the chances that Klopp’s side have made over the past few weeks.
“Other than Manchester City, I’d say most teams in the Premier League wish they could create the chances Liverpool do,” Ince wrote in his Paddy Power column.
“Those forward players need to start accepting responsibility for their actions and stop letting the defence take the flak.”
Liverpool signed four players in the summer transfer window following the additions of Mohamed Salah, Dominic Solanke, Andy Robertson and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain.
The Reds finished in fourth place in the Premier League table last season to secure a return to the Champions League.
