Liverpool just got knocked out of the FA Cup in only the 3rd Round by the Wolverhampton Wanderers and Paul Merson believes this is the best thing to happen to Jurgen Klopp’s men this season.
The Reds are currently leading the Premier League table with a 4-point gap over Manchester City and are also set to face Bayern Munich in the round of the 16 of the UEFA Champions League.
English television football pundit, Paul Merson said, “I just think it’s another game out the way. They’ve got a two-week break after playing a couple more league games and recharge their batteries.”
“They’re in an unbelievable position to make history, they haven’t won the league in 29 years. Don’t get carried away and start thinking about the double, concentrate on the league. As long as it doesn’t affect the players’ thinking, two defeats on the trot, but they’ve just been beaten by Man City, one of the best teams in the world, and made nine changes tonight. For me, it could be the best thing that happened to them.”
Jurgen Klopp does have Dejan Lovren’s injury hiccup to worry about in the coming days. The Croatian had to be taken off just 6 minutes into the match and is due for further evaluation.
Both Joe Gomez and Joel Matip are currently sidelined as well but could return soon.
