Gunners legend Adams gives Liverpool vs Arsenal prediction as he makes ‘bored’ Klopp exit claim

Tony Adams makes a Liverpool prediction

Tony Adams has explained why he thinks Arsenal will beat Liverpool at Anfield on Sunday after watching the Reds become an “absolute mess”.

The Gunners travel to Liverpool in the late kick-off on Sunday with Mikel Arteta’s side looking to regain their eight-point lead at the top of the Premier League after Manchester City beat Southampton 4-1 on Saturday.

Jurgen Klopp’s side have less to play for, with their Champions League hopes are almost over, although they still have a good chance of playing in Europe next season if they put a good run of results together.

Liverpool currently sit eighth in the Premier League table after picking up just one point from their last three matches with a win on Sunday putting them ten points behind fourth-placed Manchester United.

The Reds drew with Chelsea 0-0 last time out and, after watching that game, Arsenal legend Adams is “confident” of a Gunners win at Anfield.

“It’s more than ten years since Arsenal last won at Anfield – yet I have never been as confident of an away win as I am for today’s game,” Adams told The Sun.

“I watched Liverpool’s goalless draw at Chelsea the other day and they were an absolute mess. How Chelsea didn’t beat them by ten goals, I’ll never know.

“They were all over the place and looked as though they didn’t know what they were doing. I don’t have a clue what kind of team Jurgen Klopp will pick today  – and I don’t think he’s got much more of an idea.

“He made six changes at Chelsea after last week’s 4-1 defeat by Manchester City, but the players he brought in were no better than those he’d left out, so he’s probably going to have to go back to Plan A.

“Liverpool’s problem at the moment is that none of them are delivering. They are low on confidence, conceding goals and there are cracks now developing throughout the team.

“The main issue is that instead of playing as a team, they’re playing as individuals. And that’s just a recipe for disaster.

“Arsenal are playing as a proper team and Liverpool are playing for themselves.”

And former Arsenal centre-back Adams reckons Klopp looks “bored” of his job currently and is tipping the German to leave Liverpool at the end of the season.

Adams added: “When I look at that squad, I think they need to rip it up and instigate a complete overhaul. But I’m not totally convinced Klopp is up for that.

“He seems really bored and I can see him leaving at the end of the season. He’s had such an easy ride during his time in England because when you have a team full of amazing players, they don’t need managing.

“I know that a lot of people are looking at today’s game and predicting it could be a real turning point in the title race, but I honestly can’t see it.

“Sunday, it should be a straightforward three points.”
