Gary Neville believes that Liverpool FC should sacrifice the Champions League and focus on trying to win the Premier League title this season.

The Reds have made a brilliant start to the new season and have won all four of their opening four Premier League games to leave them joint top of the table.

Liverpool FC are aiming to be one of the main contenders for the Premier League title this season after they finished in fourth place in the table last term and without a trophy.

The Merseyside outfit earned huge amounts of praise for their fine form in Europe least season as they reached the Champions League final but ended up losing to Real Madrid.

Liverpool FC are still aiming to win their first trophy since Jurgen Klopp’s appointment at Anfield back in October 2015.

And former Manchester United defender Neville feels that Liverpool FC would be wise to focus on trying to win the Premier League this season and prioritise it ahead of the Champions League.

Speaking in an interview quoted by Metro, Neville said: “The Champions League — if I was Liverpool, I would kick it into touch.

“I know that’s very hard to do but if they could go into February, March, April without it, I think they could have a real chance if they had free weeks.

“Why? I think their method is exhausting for the front three [Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino].”

Meanwhile, Liverpool FC will return to Premier League action on Saturday lunchtime when they travel to Tottenham Hotspur in the top flight.
