Asked if he was surprised by Liverpool’s form, Rodri said as quoted on 90 Min “Only partially,"
"The Premier League level is so high that as soon as you slow down, you lose points. Liverpool are not in crisis, they are just less effective, and the Premier League does not allow you to relax.”

Liverpool’s last game will have some positives as they bounced back from an opening Champions League defeat to Napoli by beating Ajax 2-1.

In the league, however, there is still a lot of work to do, and sections of fans already feel the race for the title could be already over.
