EPL: Liverpool can forget title; they face top 4 battle, says Agbonlahor

Former Aston Villa captain, Gabby Agbonlahor, has taken fresh aim at Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool.

After the goalless draw at Goodison Park against Everton on Saturday afternoon, Agbonlahor was asked on TalkSPORT whether Klopp’s side will struggle to fight for the title.

“100 per cent. This is not a battle for the title,” said Agbonlahor, the Premier League player of the month for November 2017. “Liverpool, for me, are not fighting for the Premier League title this season.

“They are fighting to stay in the top four because Arsenal are on it. Spurs are on it. They know how to win games. They have that winning mentality. There is something missing in that side. That is the sort of game where you would rely on Mane to come up with some sort of brilliance and make a goal. Mane’s runs would open up more space for Salah.

“Salah doesn’t look like he’s going to score and that is not like Mo Salah. He has to come out wide and find space. The midfield didn’t work. They played Fabinho as a sitter and in front of him Elliott and Carvalho. It just didn’t work for me today.

“At the back, Robertson was dropped, Trent got taken off after 60 minutes. Something isn’t right with that defence with Liverpool and they are dropping too many points.”
