Dion Dublin told Football Focus that he finds it ‘hard’ that Liverpool will find any form to finish in the top four this season.
The former Premier League striker thinks Liverpool have just been ‘all over the place’ during this campaign and they simply have to write this season off.
Liverpool had two paths to go down, in regards to securing Champions League football – winning the competition itself and finishing in the top four.
Real Madrid ended one of those hopes and they will be hoping Leeds, who beat the champions-elect last time out, don’t rub further salt into their wounds on Monday night.
“I find it hard for Liverpool to find any run of form,” said Dublin. “They have just been all over the place, Liverpool.
“They are still a great club. Great side. Great manager. But this season just hasn’t worked for them.
“I think it’s come to one of the seasons where they go ‘listen, it didn’t work but I am not going to accept that next season.”
On the opening day of the season, Liverpool were in some contest when Marcelo Bielsa’s newly-promoted team turned up to Anfield and rocked the boot.
They may have left empty-handed that day, but they left their mark which is still being seen today, as that Man City win is evidence of that.
From that opening match, Leeds have become stronger and more ruthless, so a 5-5 draw wouldn’t be a bad shout for a scoreline tonight.
