Steven Gerrard makes surprise Liverpool prediction

Steven Gerrard has been discussing Liverpool’s 2022/23 campaign.

Liverpool were expected to challenge Manchester City for the title this season.

However, the Reds’ league campaign has so far been something of a disaster.

They have already lost four league games, two more than they did in the entirety of 2021/22.

As a result, Liverpool are currently 6th in the league and well off the pace of the current leaders, Arsenal.

However, Steven Gerrard now believes that the World Cup break will have allowed Jurgen Klopp’s side a refresh and they will finish the campaign strong:

“Yeah, it is [like a second pre-season]. It’s an opportunity to get a lot of work in on the training ground [and] reset a few things,” Gerrard told of the ongoing camp in Dubai.

“I’m sure Jürgen and his staff are doing a lot of things tactically but [it’s] also an opportunity to have a much-needed rest. They’ve played a lot of football over the last few years, they were involved in every competition last year.

“So to have a small pre-season before a ball was kicked [and then] to have this opportunity to rest and then have a second build-up, I’m hoping that Liverpool come flying out of the blocks.

“I expect a really strong six months and finish to the season because important players have had the chance to rest and recover and the players [who have been] in the World Cup should come back full of confidence, in a good place, physically ready. I expect a really strong, exciting finish to the season for the Reds.”
