Harry Redknapp has criticised the current Liverpool side, claiming they are “bang average” and are “lucky to have any points” so far this season.
The Reds have stuttered over their opening four Premier League games, albeit securing hard-fought 1-0 victories over both Stoke and Bournemouth.
Brendan Rodgers’ side also battled to a 0-0 draw against Arsenal at the Emirates, before falling to a poor 3-0 defeat at home to West Ham in their last fixture.
Former Spurs manager Redknapp says Liverpool are “lucky” to have any points at all from their first four fixtures, and are “the worst Liverpool team I have seen in years”.
Speaking at the Daily Telegraph’s Total Football Live event, Redknapp said: “I don’t fancy Liverpool at all.
“I think it’s the worst Liverpool team I have seen in years. They look bang average. They are lucky to have any points.
“Bournemouth should have beaten them,” Redknapp said. “They got a wonder goal at Stoke. OK, they played all right first-half at Arsenal.
“I think they will do well to finish in the top five. I am not with Liverpool at all this year. Having said that they will probably win the league.
“I love Liverpool Football Club, and if you said to me which team would I have loved to manage in this country it would be Liverpool – but I can’t see it this year.”
