Liverpool ‘worry’ pinpointed for Man City, Chelsea and title rivals | Football | Sport
“Players like Van Dijk have not forgotten how to defend. I think it’s just about pressing a reset button and you are looking at a Liverpool team who hasn’t played their strongest 11 yet this season, which is worrying for the other teams in some respects.
“When you are the champions, you are always going to find that the opponents are more motivated to come at you and get a result.
“Liverpool are maybe finding that out this season in the same way that Manchester City will have felt in previous years.
“They always say retaining the title is harder than winning it the first time.”
Meanwhile, Klopp is wary of the threat posed by Saturday’s opponents Everton, whose 100 per cent record has them top of the Premier League.
