Liverpool are currently 11pts behind leaders Chelsea going into the international break. They have lost 5 games in the league already this season, and only have one win in their past nine games. This win was against Manchester United, however their on the brink of elimination from the Champions League and with Manchester City and Everton to play in the next few weeks the gap could become wider. They have the same current form as Championship basement team Peterborough who axed their manager this week.
Liverpool do have a fantastic history, but their present is what really matters. They have never won the Premier League at look to be slipping even further away this season. They did make progress last year finishing 2nd. But here are my personal reasons to why they will not win the Premiership.
Benitez has always favoured the Champions League over the Premiership.
They should not have let Alonso go; as they did they should have replaced him with a player of equal quality.
When Torres and Gerrard are fully fit and on form Liverpool are a class team. When they are not, or one is out injured they don’t have a good enough squad to replace them.
They have relied on Captain Steven Gerrard for years now, he has carried the team (single-handed at time before Torres arrived) now they realised you can’t win the league based around one player.
Benitez’s buys have been mainly poor, Voronin, Riera, Babel Ngog, these players will never be good enough to play for Liverpool FC.
These are some of my reasons to why Liverpool won’t win the Premiership unless drastic changes are made.
