“They have snuck up on us” – Steve Nicol speaks on Liverpool’s chances of winning quadruple this season
Ex-Reds ace defender Steve Nicol shares his thoughts on Liverpool winning a quadruple and thinks the Reds could win it this season but is aware of the enormity of the challenge.
Jurgen Klopp side are having quite a great 2021-22 season as they remain in the mix for all four trophies they are competing for.
They have made their way into the final of the EFL Cup final, where they’ll play Chelsea on February 27 and they sit second in the Premier League table, six points behind leaders Manchester City, with a game in hand.
Elsewhere, Liverpool have placed one foot in the quarter-finals of the Champions League. They won 2-0 at Inter Milan in the first leg of their Round of 16 clash last week.
The Reds will also have the chance to progress to the final eight of the FA Cup when they face Norwich City in the fifth round of the competition on March 2.
Nicol feels the reds can win the quadruple this season if they keep their players fit. The former EPL star has been impressed with how his former employers have built a strong squad to compete on all fronts.
He said on ESPN FC in this regard: “If they can keep everybody fit and healthy, then they have a chance (of winning the quadruple). Right now, they have kind of snuck up on us, Liverpool, because it doesn’t seem that long ago we were talking about how the squad was a little light.”
“They actually look as though they have got two players for every position pretty much. So, if they can keep everybody healthy and get a decent sort of rotation, then they are not weakening themselves that much;
“They have a chance. Is it going to happen or is it likely? No, because it’s very difficult to do it, but they have a chance.”
If Liverpool wins the quadruple, they’ll become the first English team to do so.
