Tony Adams is ‘never so confident that Arsenal will win at Anfield against Liverpool on Sunday, and he believes Jurgen Klopp will leave at the end of the season
When Arsenal visits Anfield on Sunday, they will look to reclaim their eight-point lead over title rivals Manchester City.
Mikel Arteta’s team has been in fantastic form this season, but they must respond after Manchester City thrashed Southampton 4-1 earlier in the weekend.
While Arsenal is vying for their first league title since 2004, Liverpool is in eighth place and needs to win to keep their top-four hopes alive.
However, Adams does not believe Liverpool will derail Arsenal’s title hopes and believes the Gunners are playing like a “proper team.”
‘It’s been more than ten years since Arsenal last won at Anfield, but I’ve never been more confident of an away win than I am for today’s game,’ says the manager. Adams told The Sun about his time at Arsenal.
‘I saw Liverpool’s goalless draw at Chelsea the other day, and they were a complete mess. I’ll never understand how Chelsea didn’t beat them by ten goals.
‘They were all over the place and appeared to have no idea what they were doing. I have no idea what kind of team Jurgen Klopp will field today, and I doubt he has much more of an idea.
‘After last week’s 4-1 loss to Manchester City, he made six changes at Chelsea, but the players he brought in were no better than those he left out, so he’ll probably have to go back to Plan A.
‘Liverpool’s current problem is that none of them are delivering. They are losing confidence, conceding goals, and cracks are appearing throughout the team.
‘The main issue is that they are playing as individuals rather than as a team. And that’s just asking for trouble.
‘Arsenal is playing as a team, while Liverpool is playing for themselves.’
Under Klopp, Liverpool has won the Premier League and the Champions League, and last season they challenged for a historic quadruple.
However, the Reds have won just 12 of their 28 league games this season, and Adams believes Klopp’s time is running out.
‘When I look at that squad, I think they should rip it up and start over,’ Adams added. ‘But I’m not convinced Klopp is up for it.
‘He appears to be very bored, and I can see him leaving at the end of the season. He’s had such an easy time in England because when you have a team full of incredible players, they don’t need to be managed.
‘I know a lot of people are predicting that today’s game will be a real turning point in the title race, but I honestly don’t see it.
‘It should be a simple three points on Sunday.’
