Former Liverpool Goalkeeper Reveals How Reds Can Beat Manchester City To The Premier League Title

Brad Friedel has stated what Liverpool must do if they are to beat Manchester City to the Premier League title next season.

Liverpool finished the 2021/22 campaign one point behind City in what has been dubbed as one of the best Premier League seasons of all time.

Had it not been for five minutes of madness in Manchester City’s match vs Aston Villa, Liverpool would have been crowned Premier League champions for the second time.

The title was lost on fine margins that were encapsulated throughout the season by both teams at the top of the table and you can expect the same again next season.

Liverpool and City are potentially as close in ability as they have ever been and it's hard to pick which team will come out on top next season.

Despite Liverpool losing Sadio Mane, both teams have bolstered their attack, with Liverpool bringing in the in-form Uruguayan, Darwin Nunez, whilst Manchester City have finally acquired their long-awaited striker, Erling Haaland.

Nunez bagged 34 goals last season for Benfica as he prepares for his debut season playing under Jurgen Klopp.

He’ll hope to bring his blistering goalscoring form to Anfield when he will go head to head with some of the top strikers in the country for the golden boot. 

But according to Brad Friedel it's not the attack Liverpool should be focusing on, it’s the midfield.

The former Tottenham goalkeeper has stated that if Liverpool can keep the midfield ‘injury free’ then they will be ‘fine’.

However, if they endure a season where their ‘midfield is depleted like their defence was’ then it will be hard for them to regain the title.

Friedel expects Klopp to be ‘focusing’ on his midfield but it will take a ‘special player’ to improve what they already have.

One talented, young, midfielder the FA Cup winners have recently been linked with is Jude Bellingham but it is not expected they will make a move for him until next season, with the 18-year-old expected to stay at Borussia Dortmund during the upcoming season.
