Steve Nicol points out weakness with current Liverpool side.
Former Liverpool defender Steve Nicol has identified a weakness in Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool’s squad.
Nicol, was arguably the best right-back in the Liverpool’s history. He believes Liverpool are quite vulnerable down the right flank of their defence.
Trent Alexander-Arnold is no doubt one the finest attacking right-back in world football right now and has consistently earned plaudits thanks to his incredible ability to contribute to the reds attacking department.
However, the defensive side of Trent Alexander Arnold game continues to divide opinion.
Nicol has now suggested that the right-back is the weak link in Klopp’s side. Nicol told ESPN:
“In my eyes, Liverpool have one problem, and that is if they get attacked down the side of Alexander Arnold.
“That is the only thing right now you can look and say, that’s a problem.”
Liverpool have managed to secure three crucial points at the Emirates on Wednesday night against Arsenal.
The 2-0 win against Arsenal have reduced the gap between premier league leaders Manchester City and Liverpool to just one point.
The reds have performed excellently in returning to the Premier League title race and fans could get to witness a crazy finale to the season.
