Wilson recently ridiculed the notion that the Reds are reverting to their former selves. He brushed off praise of Jurgen Klopp’s team as being a little early given that his team competes with Liverpool for a Champions League position.
“You want to know if Liverpool is back. What exactly should I say, then? The English player said at the end of February, “They have won two games after the last few weeks, and as I mentioned, we technically allowed them to win. It was a horrible performance from our point of view.
Well, as you could expect. Wilson has apologized for his hasty remarks on his Footballer’s Football Podcast following the Reds’ thrashing of Manchester United on Sunday.
“I’m sorry I said Liverpool weren’t back. The out-of-shape 30-year-old said, “They’re back with a bang. “The cosmos right now reveals the antithesis of anything I say.” Dude, you’d better believe that.
Liverpool not getting carried away
Wilson’s initial remarks came off as a little bit sour. You might be able to excuse his snark after the Reds just defeated them for the second time this year.
Having said that, there was some trᴜth to it at the time. Liverpool had just defeated Newcastle to win the Premier League by a score of 2-0. Nevertheless, speculation of a comeback couldn’t be corroborated because recent crushing losses to Wolves and Brighton are still vivid in everyone’s minds.
After two weeks, it is still very much possible. Liverpool has now preserved five consecutive clean sheets and six in the last seven, but they must be careful not to get complacent.
The Reds have just destroyed United by an unfathomably large margin, demonstrating that they are no longer the soft touch they have been so frequently this season.
That’s definitely bad news for Wilson. Newcastle’s own performance has been inconsistent lately, but they are still in the top four contention. They shouldn’t be discounted despite being only one point behind Liverpool and having a game remaining.
Wilson must start locating the net, though, if they are to regain their footing. The £20 million man’s performance of one goal in 12 games since the World Cup is inadequate. Liverpool won’t have to worry too much about the Toon if he maintains this level of play.
