Manchester United legend Ryan Giggs has described Liverpool’s form as “scary” and earmarked them as potential Premier League champions.
Liverpool has made a perfect start to the season in the league after six games and Giggs, a 13-time title winner with United, views their ability to win in different ways as an asset.
Speaking to Sky Sports, Giggs said:
“You’ve got players who’ve been in the team a couple of years and you’ve got young players coming through with experience of Jordan Henderson and James Milner so it’s a good blend in there”.
“Liverpool haven’t played well in some games but scraped results, which is actually quite scary because if you’re able to do that, that’s championship form, so not only the swash-buckling three or four goals, but digging out results is what you need to do to win it”.
According to Giggs, champions Manchester City rank alongside Liverpool as challengers and Chelsea are an outsider but did not mention United among the teams he expected to battle it out at the top. He said that:
“It looks like a case of Manchester City vs. Liverpool for the title, although you can’t dismiss Chelsea because they’re playing well”.
