Neville calls for Liverpool to overhaul defence like City

Gary Neville has urged Jurgen Klopp to oversee a Manchester City-esque overhaul of Liverpool’s defence.

Liverpool were held 3-3 by Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium on Friday despite having lead 2-0 just after the 50th minute.

Arsenal scored three times in the space of five minutes before Roberto Firmino rescued a point. Somehow, we managed to keep the Conclusions down to 16.

The main talking point both before, during and after the match was Liverpool’s defence, with Neville taking aim once more after they squandered yet another lead.

The Mailbox thinks that Klopp will be gone from Anfield soon, but Neville has given him at least one final missive: just do what Pep did.

“Get rid of the players. You look at what Pep Guardiola did last season,” he told Sky Sports.

“He brought Claudio Bravo in for big money. He wasn’t good enough and couldn’t adapt to the Premier League. He got rid of him. Ederson comes in and looks fantastic.

“The full-backs weren’t good enough at City, he got rid of them, spent £130 million on three new ones and just dealt with the issue.

“He has got to deal with the issue and Jurgen Klopp is the only one who can do that. It is staring everyone in the face.”
