Nevile was forced to make a comparison between the Reds and Manchester City for the past three years. Although he suggested that he will always take Liverpool all day long, he admitted that he admired how fantastic the Manchester team is.
The former Manchester United player had earlier anticipated that the Reds would have a little bit of a dip and expected them to go easy on it but he is really surprised that Liverpool poor form isn’t just a little dip but a collapse.

With Jurgen Klopp longterm coaching experience, Neville feels the manager has enough quality and he is aware that he needs to get his Liverpool team to the finish by whatever means possible.
According to Neville, regrouping is necessary for Klopp’s men to make sure that the damage being done at the moment doesn’t cause long-standing damage to the team’s confidence. He however admits that Liverpool is a great team with great players, as it’s not possible to achieve what they have been able to achieve without being a fantastic team.
Liverpool has lost everything, Their speed of play and confidence is all lost and Neville noted that the players’ determination and resilience to win when they weren’t playing well is now lacking in a team, which made Anfield a difficult place to go for other teams.
