Former Crystal Palace defender Chris Coleman is ‘amazed by the criticism’ Liverpool have received this season.
Coleman believes Liverpool are ‘one of the best teams in the Premier League’ and that they deserve to be treated like one after winning the English top-flight and the Champions League last season.
Coleman has, however, admitted that Liverpool’s style of play is unsustainable and that Jurgen Klopp must ‘add some players in the transfer window’ to avoid burn out.

Speaking on Monday Night football, Coleman said: ‘I’m amazed listening to some of the criticism of Liverpool. This is a team that won the title, Champions League title, been labelled as one of the best team in the Premier League – which absolutely they are.
‘This season they have had crippling injuries to important players. Also the style of football Jurgen Klopp likes – heavy metal football – that they have been doing for two or three seasons and sooner or later that will catch up.

However, he recognises the importance of Jurgen Klopp adding players in the summer window
‘They are a great team, they are in a sticky moment. Will they win the league, no.
‘I think they need to add some players and they need to back Jurgen in the transfer market.
‘No team can maintain those standards, but can they come back again? Of course they can.
‘A lot of their players look a bit tired and jaded from playing the most attacking, the most exciting football, but they will come back again.
