Souness: This is the strongest Liverpool side since 1990

Graeme Souness has said that the current Liverpool side could be the best side since the Reds’ title-winning side of 1990.

It has been a lean period of trophies at Anfield in recent years, with Liverpool failing to have won silverware for 10 years, and failing to get their hands on the league title in the Premier League era.

Despite the ongoing drought, Jurgen Klopp has assembled one of the most attractive sides in Europe, with the Reds scoring goals for fun last season on their way to the Champions League final.

Klopp has added plenty of new talent to his squad this summer, with many thinking that they will be Manchester City‘s closest challengers when the medals are handed out in May 2019.

One of those men is former Reds midfielder Graeme Souness, who not only thinks that the current crop of Liverpool star are the best since 1990, but they could play together for 10 more years:

“Van Dijk has made an enormous difference,” he told Sky Sports News. “People say one player couldn’t make that difference but he has, he’s settled everyone around him.

“If you look at Liverpool’s back four, there’s possibly 10 years in all of them, especially if the goalkeeper is the real deal.

“You’ve got two young full-backs in Trent Alexander-Arnold and Andrew Robertson, Joe Gomez and Van Dijk; there’s possibly 10 years of playing together there.

“If you’ve got that, what stability that gives you. If you get that right, you don’t give daft goals away, you believe in each other, then the guys at the other end can nick you games when you defend properly.

“Liverpool are as strong as I can remember, going back to when they were winning the league last time. This is the strongest group they’ve had since then.”
