Mark Lawrenson shares something that worries him about Liverpool

Mark Lawrenson BBC pundit watches the game during The Emirates FA Cup Third Round Replay between Burnley and Sunderland  at Turf Moor on January 17, 2017 in Burnley, England.

Liverpool fans will be desperate to see their side win the Premier League title this season.

BBC pundit Mark Lawrenson looks on as prepares for the start of the npower Championship match between Queens Park Rangers and Leeds United at Loftus Road on May 7, 2011 in London, England.

Mark Lawrenson suggested that he is concerned by the fact that Liverpool's front-three have played almost non-stop for two years, when speaking exclusively to BBC Sport.

The Reds were so close to winning their first top flight title since 1990 last season, eventually missing out to Manchester City by just a single point.

In truth, there was little more they could have done. Jurgen Klopp's side finished with 97 points, having won their last 10 straight Premier League games.

 

But can they go one step further this season?

Mark Lawrenson spoke exclusively to BBC Sport, and outlined his concerns about Liverpool's attacking options:

"My only reservation about Liverpool is that the front three have played non-stop for two years. It worries me a little bit."

Klopp hasn't really strengthened his ranks at Anfield this summer, bringing in only two young players for the future in the form of Harvey Elliot and Sepp van den Berg.

Only time will tell if the Liverpool boss was right not to invest in a marquee signing, but with Pep Guardiola having strengthened his ranks at the Etihad, the Merseyside club will have their work cut out if they are to usurp City to the title this season.
