Liverpool legend John Arne Riise believes his former club aren’t strong enough depth-wise to keep up with Manchester City and Chelsea in the Premier League title race.
Liverpool are fourth in the Premier League, four points behind leaders Chelsea, after losing 3-2 at West Ham before the international break.
“I’m a little bit concerned about the depth in the squad,” Riise told talkSPORT. “I don’t think we have the top, top players when we lose (players). Like last season, when we lost (Virgil) Van Dijk and a few other players, you could see we struggled.
“I’m scared it could be the same this year. When people are injured, suspended or even for the African Nations Cup when we lose some players, I’m a little bit worried that it is where the title is going decided.
“I don’t think we are strong enough depth-wise in the long-run with Manchester City or Chelsea.”
