Watch: Rio explains why LFC defence can be exploited by ‘average’ players
Rio Ferdinand believes “average” players can exploit Liverpool‘s defensive issues this season and suggests Trent Alexander-Arnold is “at odds” with the instructions he is being given by Jurgen Klopp.
Liverpool have struggled defensively in 2020-21, conceding 13 goals in their opening five Premier League fixtures, including seven at Aston Villa.
Speaking as a pundit on BT Sport ahead of Liverpool’s Champions League clash with Ajax, Ferdinand suggested structural issues -specifically the high line being deployed – are exposing Liverpool’s defence, especially without the presence of a natural sweeper keeper in Alisson.
Watch the full clip below, featuring plenty of interesting insight from the former England international.
"This is what for you guys…?"
"Fantasy land." 😂
