He added: “I think Liverpool supporters will be massively frustrated. This team has done something for this club that hasn’t been done for so long – brought the title back.
“They’ll always be legends for that but [teams in the past] kept that standard year-in and year-out.
“To be fair to this team, they have over the last three years in terms of Champions League finals, Champions League winners and last year winning the league.
“For whatever reason this season, it’s not dropped off, it’s massively dropped off in the last four or five games and it’s a huge worry going forward not just in terms of the title, but the top-four positions.
“At this moment, Liverpool are massively out of form and have got a really tough run of six or seven fixtures to come and if they don’t go well, they’ll be completely out of the title race by then.
“I have no doubt that by the middle or end of February if those results don’t go well.
“But then between now and the end of the season, if that happens, Liverpool will be fighting for their lives to make sure they’re in the Champions League next season.”
