ESPN pundit replies when asked if Liverpool FC need signings in midfield
Steve Nicol suggests that Liverpool FC do not need any new signings in midfield as things stand
Steve Nicol does not believe that Liverpool FC need any new signings in midfield in the January transfer window.
The Reds have made a stunning start to the new season and they currently find themselves top of the table and eight points clear of second-placed Leicester City after 12 games.
Liverpool FC sealed a thrilling 3-1 win over Manchester City in the Premier League at Anfield at the weekend to underline their title credentials for this season.
Jurgen Klopp’s men are unbeaten in the top flight and they have only dropped points in a 1-1 draw with Manchester United at Old Trafford so far this season.
Liverpool FC have a plethora of options in midfield as things stand, and ESPN FC pundit Nicol does not believe that the Reds need to strengthen in that area any time soon.
Speaking in an interview with ESPN FC, as quoted by the Daily Express, Nicol replied when asked if Liverpool FC need any signings in midfield: “I don’t think so.
“[Jordan] Henderson’s still got two or three seasons in him, Fabinho no question.
“The fact that [Alex] Oxlade-Chamberlain has come in, I think probably he’s going to be the guy that will replace the minutes that Milner gets, eventually.
“They have [Naby] Keita, so they’ve got plenty of options in the middle and as I said, the hard work that the middle three has to do, you need options.
“I’m forgetting [Georginio] Wijnaldum as well who’s been superb and who’s probably the most technical player out of all the players in the middle.
“So they’ve got competition for places, they’ve got guys who he knows will work their tail off, and he’s got guys right now who not only will work their tail off, but every now and again will add something as well.”
Liverpool FC will return to Premier League action after the international break with a trip to Crystal Palace.
The Reds are aiming to go one step further in the Premier League than they did last season after they finished second in the table and just a point behind Manchester City.
