Rio Ferdinand Identifies Crucial Aspects Of Liverpool’s Game That He Believes Make Them The Greatest He’s Ever Seen.

Liverpool thrashed Villarreal 2-0 in the first leg of their Champions League semi-final showdown on Wednesday night, earning plaudits from Rio Ferdinand as a result.

Rio Ferdinand, a former Manchester United defender, feels there are four major reasons why Liverpool’s current squad is the greatest he has ever seen.

The Reds have a legitimate opportunity to achieve a historic quadruple this season, as evidenced by their 2-0 win against Villarreal in the first leg of their Champions League semi-final.

At Anfield, an own goal deflected from a Jordan Henderson pass and Sadio Mane’s strike were the deciding factors.

With a team as talented as Jurgen Klopp’s, it’s difficult to believe Liverpool isn’t one of the finest in Premier League history.

Despite having some of the top players in the world, Ferdinand does not feel their success is due to their talent.

“This is the finest Liverpool team I’ve ever seen,” he told BT Sport following Villarreal’s triumph.

“With and without the ball, they’re relentless. It’s the way they press teams, the amount of intensity, effort, and application.”

He went on to declare that the team’s goal should be to win the quadruple, adding, “That has got to be the goal for these Liverpool players.

They will set a goal for themselves, and if they achieve it, they will be immortal and better than anyone who has ever played football in this nation.

That has to be their goal, but we’ll have to wait and see.”

“Imagine that,” Liverpool legend Michael Owen said. Isn’t it impossible?

But now you’re wondering if it might really happen? The style they’re playing, the number of players they’ve managed to fit in, their confidence and the mood in the stadium all make you wonder, “Can it happen?”

Manchester City has the best opportunity of preventing Liverpool from putting their name into the annals of football history.

On 80 points, they are one point ahead of Liverpool in the Premier League, and if they don’t lose any of their next five games, they will raise the trophy at the conclusion of the season.

They are also expected to face Liverpool in the Champions League final after defeating Real Madrid 4-3 in the first leg of their semi-final on Tuesday night.

Though Los Blancos will not go down without a fight in the return match at the Santiago Bernabeu.

Of course, Liverpool will take each game as it comes – as they have all season – and will focus on their meeting against Newcastle on Saturday.

Klopp will be hoping his team can repeat their stunning performance against Villarreal at St James’ Park.

Klopp remarked of Tuesday’s performance, “To be honest, it was a wonderful game. I loved the first half a lot; the only thing that disappointed us was that we didn’t score.

But we managed to keep them quiet, which was crucial given the potential of a counterattack.

We tried to create, be direct, play through and over the lines, and we had a lot of excellent moments.”

We then polished off those situations in the second half, and we earned those goals based on our performance.
