Arsenal legend Paul Merson believes that Liverpool FC’s FA Cup exit will give the team time to concentrate on the Premier League title race.
Liverpool lost 2-1 away to Wolverhampton Wanderers in a match where manager Jurgen Klopp featured a youthful team while resting most of the first-team players in a move to concentrate on the Premier League title race.
Speaking to The Debate on Sky Sports via The Sports review, Merson said:
“I just think it’s another game out the way. They’ve got a two-week break after playing a couple more league games and recharge their batteries.
“They’re in an unbelievable position to make history, they haven’t won the league in 29 years – don’t get carried away and start thinking about the double, concentrate on the league.
“As long as it doesn’t affect the players’ thinking, two defeats on the trot, but they’ve just been beaten by Man City, one of the best teams in the world, and made nine changes tonight.
“For me, it could be the best thing that happened to them.”
