Gary Neville has admitted that the main thing he is worried about with Liverpool FC is Jurgen Klopp’s men burning out.

The Reds have been earning huge amounts of praise for their attacking displays under Klopp this term but it is their performances at the back which have come under scrutiny.

The Merseyside outfit are now known for their intense and energetic displays up front.

But former Manchester United defender Neville feels that the one downside of that approach is that Klopp’s players can burn out relatively quickly.

Speaking on his Sky Sports podcast, Neville said: “I said this last season – the worry for Liverpool will be when you do start to play three games a week, you do see fatigue.

“The way they play asks a lot of those legs. What Liverpool ask of their front three is incredible.”

Liverpool FC are looking to get back to winning ways in the Premier League after they were held to a 2-2 draw by Tottenham Hotspur at Anfield last weekend.

The Reds will travel to the south coast to take on Southampton on Sunday afternoon as they bid to keep alive their hopes of finishing in the top four this season.

Liverpool FC are currently in third place in the Premier League table as they bid to try and finish in the Champions League qualification spots.

The Merseyside outfit will take on FC Porto in the Champions League last 16 later this month.
