Steve Nicol’s blunt response when asked if he’s delighted with Liverpool’s start

Liverpool have won their first two Premier League games of the season.

Steve Nicol explained on the ESPN FC show on BT Sport 1 on Tuesday morning why he is not entirely happy with Liverpool’s start to the 2015-16 Premier League campaign.

“I am delighted with the two victories, but I would be lying if I said that I am delighted with the way they are playing,” the former Liverpool defender replied when asked if he is delighted with how the Reds have started the season.

Liverpool have won both of their Premier League games this season, but the performance of Brendan Rodgers’s side has left much to be desired.

The Potters edged past Stoke City 1-0 away from home at the Britannia Stadium on the opening weekend of the season, before getting the better of Bournemouth by the same margin at Anfield on Monday evening.

The Reds have not looked creatively great, while just two goals in their opening two games are not exactly praiseworthy.

However, the key fact is that Liverpool have picked up six points from their opening two matches of the season.

The former European champions are aiming to finish in the top four of the Premier League this campaign.

While Liverpool fans will want the team to play well as the season progresses, they should be pleased that they have a 100% record at the moment.
