Liverpool are showing the exact signs Manchester United showed during their dominance in the EPL, according to former Reds star, Gary Gillespie.
Liverpool went two points clear of title rivals Manchester City with a last-minute 2-1 win over Tottenham on Sunday, and Gillespie hailed his old team’s ability to fight for the result.
His words, “[Winning when playing badly] is the mark of a championship-winning side,”
“How many times did we see Manchester United do that in their pomp?
“At times, you look at these sorts of scenarios and think ‘yes, they didn’t play very well and yes they were exceptionally lucky at the end’.
“But that’s what it takes sometimes to win the Premier League. Right throughout the season, you’re going to have a balance.
“Sometimes you’re going to play well and not get the result, but sometimes you’re going to play poorly and get that little bit of luck.”
“Liverpool have got amazing sorts of players but Mane was a bit quiet yesterday,”
“You had flashes but he has been the one inspiration this season that has taken up the mantle.
“There’s always that little bit of brilliance within him or the likes of Firmino, just that one turn or little pass which can be the difference. We have got players there.
“I would just like to see them have a couple more players in the middle of the park with that sort of ability to change a game.
“I’m sure Jurgen has identified that and come the summer, that might be where you strengthen, that area of the pitch.”
