"They’re Hard To Stop" – Shay Given Names Team To Challenge Man City For Title
Given feels Liverpool are hard to stop this season because their manager Jurgen Klopp rotates his squad
Former Newcastle United goalkeeper, Shay Given has identified Liverpool as the team that can challenge Manchester City for the Premier League title this season.
Given feels Liverpool are hard to stop this season because their manager Jurgen Klopp rotates his squad.
According to him, the Reds not playing in the UEFA Champions League this season could benefit them in the title race with Manchester City.
"Liverpool won’t like being in the Europa League, but it will help them challenge City, because their midweek games will not be as demanding as Champions League matches are.
“I am not saying the Europa League is easy, but the facts are the teams are not as good, and it means Klopp will be able to rotate his squad. He did it against LASK in Austria on Thursday, when Salah came off the bench late on to score, but was still fresh to face West Ham.
“It is another reason why this strong Liverpool start might be hard to stop,” Given wrote in his BBC column.
