honor last season which was awaited by the fans for thirty years. The Reds are the favorites to win the Premier League again as they have started the new season in a good form. One of the most-talked-about aspects of Klopp’s team is its crushing firepower in the attacking line. In a recent interview with

Amazon Prime


Paul Scholes

has spoken about Liverpool’s form and their similarities to Sir Alex Ferguson’s Manchester United.

"I go back to my playing days at Man Utd - we always had four centre forwards,

"If two of them weren't doing it for an hour there were always two on the bench to come on and make the difference. That's what they built here.

"OK they're playing in a different way, I know that, with the three, but having Jota in the wings it has to sharpen you up. Whether Jota's playing and Firmino's on the bench or whoever's on the bench it does liven you up.

"You're having a little look across all the time just keeping you on your toes. Is he going to bring me off? You have to perform to make sure he doesn't."

Scholes admits that Liverpool deserved last year’s League trophy.

"Great credit to them, they were fantastic, they deserved it.

"It was a shame for them that the fans weren't involved. I'm sure there would have been week-long celebrations, parades, there would have been all sorts. It's a shame, but the fans are coming back now. I won't say I hope they win it again for their fans, but I think they're well on their way to doing that anyway."
