Jamie Carragher backs 'brilliant' summer signing to come good for Liverpool despite slow start

Liverpool weren't close to challenging Manchester City for the Premier League in 2017/18, but they were able to reach the Champions League final before being defeated by Real Madrid in Kiev.

"If you want to win Premier League titles then you have to win these games, so Liverpool will be judged on this too".

For all the difficulties of worldwide breaks and early kick-offs, I'm still hopeful that Spurs v Liverpool won't be a low scoring game on Saturday. "We are a big team - big teams have to have the goal to win titles".

"To win games on the days you don't play so well, that's a hint of saying you have a chance to win the Premier League because when we play well, which is most of the time, we win".

"Because if you're much closer to the top of the Premier League, that means that you're consistently winning matches and playing well which would help you in cup competitions as well".

Now regarded as one of the best pundits in England, during his playing career Neville was known for his rabid love for Manchester United and his run-ins against Liverpool.

Roberto Firmino and Mohamed Salah have started the season in decent form, while teammate Sadio Mane has already notched up four league goals.

Friends of mine that support Manchester United often ask me what I would consider to be a successful season given the point that Klopp is at in his managerial tenure and the money that has been spent.

"At Bayern they only have the mentality of winning titles. I am more thoughtful now". We are still a young team.

Of course, you accept it because that's modern football, you just need to try and focus on the game but these games can often be slow starting and low on quality, because the players aren't fully rested and concentrated. He plays more centrally for Switzerland, so maybe that's something going forward for Liverpool also. "That has to be our aim".
