Michael Owen has expressed his opinion that Liverpool’s midfield needs to be changed, citing James Milner and Jordan Henderson as the best players in the area. He also criticized Fabinho, Harvey Elliott, and Naby Keita for their performances this season. The Reds’ 0-0 draw with Crystal Palace was another disappointing result, but they have two games in hand and the chance to redeem themselves against Wolves on Wednesday.
Michael Owen has suggested drastic change in the midfield area of Liverpool Football Club following their 0-0 draw against Crystal Palace.
The former Reds’ player highlighted that Liverpool midfielders James Milner and Jordan Henderson have been performing well this season and should continue to be an integral part of the team. However, he was critical of other players – Fabinho, Harvey Elliott and Naby Keita – suggesting that the club needs to find better players to occupy these positions.
As far as the 0-0 stalemate against Crystal Palace is concerned, it was yet another disappointing result with Liverpool trailing in 4th place some 11 points behind Leicester City, the current league leader.
Luckily, two games are still in hand, and the men in red have the chance to redeem themselves against Wolves on Wednesday. However, it’s hard to deny that the midfield play has been heavily criticized this season, and many believe that Liverpool needs to invest in better players in order to compete in the upper end of the table.
Owen’s comments on the state of the midfield have caused quite a stir among Liverpool fans, with some agreeing with his assessment and some questioning his opinions and critique of certain players. In the meantime, Jurgen Klopp and his team are preparing for the game against Wolves, and it will be interesting to see how the Liverpool midfield will (or won’t) produce against the Midlands club.
