Liverpool are expected to win the 2020/2021 Premier League title. But for Rio Ferdinand, there is one weakness The Reds that could hold them back from reaching the championship ladder.
The Premier League title is rolling back this weekend. A number of top teams began to be favored to win at the end of the competition, one of which is Liverpool, which is the 2019/2020 Premier League champion.
Liverpool have strong capital to welcome the 2020/2021 Premier League title. Status as defending champions, the club from Merseyside still retained their core squad when they won the league title last season.
However, not a few also doubt Liverpool can defend their crown of champions. One of them is Rio Ferdinand, the legend of the Manchester United team who is actually a rival The Reds.
In Ferdinand’s view, Liverpool could potentially lose their title because Juergen Klopp’s squad did not add much fresh blood to his team. This was considered dangerous when one of their core players was suddenly hit by an injury in the middle of the competition.
As is known, Liverpool have only brought in one new player, namely Kostas Tsimikas. The Greek defender was prepared as a coating for Andrew Robertson on the left sector of the defense.

“Nobody said that Liverpool had a strange season because they finished so much above their rivals. However, there is one big factor from them that could hamper their progress,” Ferdinand told reporters. TeamTalk.
“Their main key is to keep their core players fit for the past two seasons. It is massive and what is not yet known is how they will work when some of their pillars are out for a long time,” he added.
“If they lose one or two players due to serious injuries, then we will see something different from them,” said Rio Ferdinand about Liverpool in the 2020/2021 Premier League.
