Former Liverpool manager Roy Evans feels that their early-season habit of winning when not at their best will bode well

The Reds have won all four of their opening games of the 2018/19 Premier League campaign to sit top of the standings.

Although, despite a notable 4-0 win over West Ham United in their opening match, Liverpool have struggled since then.

Victory at Crystal Palace only came at the last minute, whilst wins over Brighton and Hove Albion and Leicester City came through a narrow one-goal advantage.

But Evans feels that this will put Liverpool in good stead of the remainder of the campaign as the club will only improve as the season progresses.

He told the club website: “So far this season it has been win, win, win – which is brilliant,”

“We’re not playing at our very best, Jürgen has admitted that and I agree. We have not been brilliant but we’ve been a lot more compact.

“To win games on the days you don’t play so well, that’s a hint of saying you have a chance to win the Premier League because when we play well, which is most of the time, we win.

“And if we can add the results of the odd bad day to it, you’re going to be pretty close.”

Liverpool will face Tottenham at Wembley this Saturday.
