Frank Lampard: What worries me about Liverpool FC in Champions League
The Chelsea FC legend suggests Liverpool FC need one or more two players to win the Champions League
Frank Lampard believes Liverpool FC could be one or two players short to win the Champions League crown this season.
The Reds booked their place in the Champions League quarter-final draw following a comfortable win over FC Porto.
Liverpool FC were 5-0 winners against FC Porto in the first leg of their last-16 clash last month following Sadio Mane’s hat-trick.
The Merseyside outfit played out a goalless draw in the return fixture at Anfield to ensure their safe progress to the last eight.
Liverpool FC are looking to win their first piece of silverware under Jurgen Klopp following his appointment in 2015.
The Reds are one of two Premier League teams in the Champions League last-eight draw.
Liverpool FC could face Bundesliga side Bayern Munich, Serie A duo AS Roma and Juventus or La Liga trio Barcelona, Real Madrid and Sevilla.
However, former Chelsea FC star Lampard is worried that Liverpool FC are still lacking a couple of players to win their first Champions League crown since 2005.
“Obviously the front three are fantastic.
“My only worry is that is it a year or two too early in their progress defensively and as a team?
“Van Dijk has come in and been fantastic and shored them up. But are they maybe still one or two players short as a team to be able to go all the way [in the Champions League]?
“But they’ve definitely got a chance.”
Liverpool FC haven’t won the Champions League title since 2005 after the Reds came from 3-0 down to beat AC Milan on penalties in Istanbul.
The Merseyside outfit lost 3-1 to Spanish side Sevilla in the Europa League final under Klopp in Basel in 2016.
