Nicol: Liverpool can do the double
Stevie Nicol is a man that knows a thing or two about doubles, and the LFC legend reckons that our summer business, along with the squad available to Klopp means that we can do a double (Premier League and Champions League).
The Reds followed a 0-0 draw against Bayern Munich last Wednesday, at Anfield, with a 0-0 draw against Manchester United but remain in a strong position 1 point clear of City at the top of the Premier League and in with a strong chance of progressing against one of the initial favourites for the Champions League.
Speaking on ESPN (via the Liverpool Echo), Nicol said: "Liverpool have as good an opportunity this season to win the double - the Champions League and the Premier League - as much as any other team around the world.
"So Liverpool have gone that extra mile but they’ve done it in a smart way.
"They’ve bought well, they’ve bought young, they’ve bought potential that has matured.
"The likes of Salah, the likes of Mane, Firmino.
"All these guys were bought in and were relatively unknown, but no one was saying these guys are going to be superstars.
"They’re now in that sort of position."
One thing the former Red isn't wrong about Is that Klopp's team are more than capable of winning either competition. The prospect of both though, will have fans salivating but we're almost certain most would be content with the Premier League this season.
