Stelling slams ‘garbage’ claims that Liverpool are ‘spiralling out of control’

Jeff Stelling has slammed the "garbage" claims that things are "spiralling out of control" at Liverpool this season.

The Reds have made a slow start to the new season, with their problems confounded by a 4-1 mauling by Napoli in their Champions League opener last Wednesday. Following the defeat in Italy, Jurgen Klopp and his players have come under fire from fans and pundits, including talkSPORT host Jason Cundy.

The former Chelsea midfielder exclaimed during a recent show, via SportBible: “Klopp, you look at what he’s done at Borussia Dortmund and how his career ended there, it’s happening again at Liverpool.

“Liverpool right now are spiralling out of control. They are not the same team. Mane is a miss. Van Dijk is not the same player as he was. He’s all over the place, look at his body shape when they concede the goal in the Champions League final.”

However, Soccer Saturday host Stelling is not convinced by the criticism of Liverpool and responded to Cundy's comments on social media.

“Liverpool 9 Bournemouth 0," wrote Stelling. "Spiralling out of control. Get a grip. I know it’s all click bait. Maybe not enough changes in squad, VVD still not quite what he was since serious injury, Salah not at best but the only people spiralling out of control are those who spout this garbage!”

Are Liverpool spiralling out of control this season? Let us know in the comments section below.

Liverpool are currently seventh in the Premier League after six matches of the new season, trailing league leaders Arsenal by six points already.

Klopp's side have won twice in the league along with three draws and one defeat, against rivals Manchester United. Meanwhile, their European campaign got off to the worst possible start with that heavy defeat to Napoli.

The Reds will have the opportunity to get their bid to reach the knockout stages back on track on Tuesday night when they welcome Dutch champions Ajax to Anfield.
