Former Liverpool captain Paul Ince says the current Reds side is still some way off being an all-time great Premier League team despite being on course for a record points total this season
The ex-Inter and Manchester United midfielder believes Jurgen Klopp’s men must win back to back league titles if they want to be ranked among the best:
“It’s tough to say that (they are among the best) but I think what Liverpool have done has been a great achievement. I think the quality of the Premier League hasn’t been what it has been previously.”
“Are they a great team? I wouldn’t say they are; you have to win it season after season. I think they have got the talent and the manager to become a great team. Great teams keep winning. If they win it this year and next year, then we can start calling them a great team.”
You can kind of see where Ince is coming from in the fact that this Liverpool side needs to demonstrate its longevity before going down in history.
However, having only dropped five points in 29 games played is a fantastic achievement which should be recognised and if the season is completed with them accruing more than 100 points, it would be harsh to dismiss it as a one-off.
Especially when you consider the fact they collected 97 points last season, and won the Champions League, there really isn’t much more that this current Liverpool side can do.
