Liverpool’s win over Bayern Munich will propel them to Premier League success, says Tim Sherwood.

The former Spurs manager believes the maturity displayed by Jurgen Klopp’s men in their win over Bayern will be a massive boost in a keenly contested title race.

The Reds went into the tie on the back of one win in five games. However, the Merseysiders responded in an emphatic fashion at the Allianz Arena with a 3-1 win to silence critics.

Prior to the clash, Gary Neville hinted the Champions League was a big distraction to their title ambitions, but Sherwood feels winning games such as last night’s win could spur the Reds on to Premier League success.

But Sherwood told The Debate “The win in Munich would give his side was irreplaceable, saying: “You’re meant to want to win every football match you take part in.

“If you tell your players we’re not going to try because we’re putting all our eggs in the Premier League basket, well it’s difficult enough to win any tournament especially when Man City are around in both.

Pep apologises to Liverpool fans for vile chants

Pep Guardiola has apologised to Liverpool supporters - but suggested the offensive chants from his Manchester City players was not aimed at Sean Cox or...

“So have a go at trying to win everything. That’s what they’re doing and this will give them a massive boost going into the league campaign.

“We’ve got a little bit of a break now, with internationals, and I think it’s a massive shot in the arm for the club. They will think they can go away and win anywhere now.”

Liverpool will be aiming to wrap up the week with a win over Fulham at the Craven Cottage on Sunday, which would see them regain top spot before the International break.
