Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has been warned by Martin Keown that the Merseysiders need to improve their mentality if they want to win the league title this season.
The Reds notched a 1-1 draw, thanks to a late Adam Lallana equalizer, that saw them lose their first points this season.
Liverpool were from their usual self against Manchester United. And, former Arsenal player Keown believes that they must change their mentality to keep up with the rising pressure in the league.
“Liverpool need to learn to enjoy the situation they are in. Yes, every man and his dog may be prematurely putting a crown on your heads, but you have to embrace that,” the former Arsenal defender wrote in his column for the Daily Mail.
“Relish the pedestal you’re being put on. Liverpool lacked that mentality yesterday. They did not turn up at Old Trafford looking like a team that had won their last 17 Premier League games. They didn’t swagger in there like champions in waiting.”
“It took Liverpool a while to sort themselves out but Klopp used his substitutes well and they got something out of this game. That at least suggests they can become champions.”
“Earlier on, they did not look like arriving as top dogs brought them any enjoyment, and that has to change.”
