After a disappointing 1-1 draw with Norwich on Saturday, certain sections of the media have inevitably already begun writing off Liverpool’s top four chances this season. It is easy to react this way in the aftermath of a bad result, but in the grand scheme of things we have to remember that we have a very long season ahead and that all of the top teams will drop points against teams considered inferior opposition. Liverpool’s last two matches have been at Anfield and a two point return out of a possible six admittedly isn’t good enough for a team chasing a Champions League position, but upon reflection at the weekend’s games, it’s clear that it is not the end of the world.

Thinking positively, Liverpool have actually gained a point on both Manchester United and Chelsea this weekend after their shock defeats. We’re not in the best of league positions but certainly not the worst and we will have plenty of opportunities to turn it around. Things can change ridiculously quick in football, which was illustrated by the fact that Manchester City are now considered the favourites for the title, which is something you wouldn’t have said two or three weeks ago.

As for Liverpool, I definitely believe we have a squad capable of reaching the Champions League positions. Liverpool’s main problem so far this season has been the amount of players trying to gel into the team in one go. Whereas in previous transfer windows, we would buy one or two top players and then a few squad players, this time it’s been done in reverse. Liverpool currently have six first XI players in the team that weren’t here a year ago, which means that it will take time for them to settle and really understand each other.
