Riise is concerned and believes the Reds Poor transfer window, means should injuries pile up, they may have to go another season without a trophy.

“I was a little bit worried in the beginning because I didn’t think we replaced [Gini] Wijnaldum who I think was extremely important for Liverpool,” Riise told talkSPORT.

“But then in the beginning I thought played exceptionally well

“I’m really concerned about the depth in the squad, I don’t think they have the top, top, top-class players.

“Could be injured, suspension, Africa Cup of Nations when we lose some players [Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane and Naby Keita], I’m a little bit worried that’s when the title is going to be decided.

“I don’t think we are strong enough depth-wise to compete in the long run with Manchester City or Chelsea.”

Just before the International break, Liverpool were without the services of a number of their players due to injury, hopefully, they will be fit after the two-week-long break.
