Former Tottenham and Queens Park Rangers manager Harry Redknapp says the current Liverpool side is amongst the “worst in years” and can’t see the Reds making a title challenge this season.
Brendan Rodgers’ side took seven points from its opening three fixtures before suffering a calamitous 3-0 defeat to West Ham United at Anfield last weekend.
Redknapp says the Merseyside club will be lucky to grab a Europa League spot.
“I don’t fancy Liverpool at all,” Redknapp at the Telegraph Total Football event, as reported by the Liverpool Echo.
“I think it’s the worst Liverpool team I have seen in years. They look bang average. They are lucky to have any points.
“Bournemouth should have beaten them, they got a wonder goal at Stoke. OK, they played all right first-half at Arsenal.
“I think they will do well to finish in the top five. I am not with Liverpool at all this year.
“Having said that they will probably win the league.”
Liverpool were extremely active in the summer transfer window, bringing in the likes of Christian Benteke, James Milner, Roberto Firmino, Danny Ings and Joe Gomez.
The defensive pairing of Dejan Lovren and Martin Skrtel looked to have improved dramatically after Liverpool did not concede a goal in the opening three fixtures.
However, the loss to West Ham was a cause for major concern for Brendan Rodgers after Lovren in particular put in a horror performance.
