“Jurgen has some hard thinking to do. Some of those players look like they are shot. There is no sparkle about them. This will be a real test for these players. Jurgen will now find out what he has in the dressing room.”

“There is so much expectation on their shoulders because of what they have done in the last couple of seasons - European champions, Premier League champions,”

“The expectation levels are there and on their shoulders. It was at the start of the season and they have not dealt with it very well.”

“That's what makes you a special team. It's hard enough to win it. But to retain it and stay there, year in and year out, that's what makes you a special team and right now this Liverpool team are not up for that challenge.”
