Paul Merson slams moaning Liverpool fans in Arsenal ‘Invincibles’ comparison
Liverpool fans shouldn't lose sight of their teams achievements over the last 12 months just because they had had a wobble and lost three of their last four games, reckons Paul Merson.
The Arsenal hero says the Jurgen Klopp and co. should not put too much weight their FA Cup exit at the hands of Chelsea and not feel too much pressure to knock Atletico Madrid out of the Champions League.
Because in Merson's view, winning the Premier League is by far and away the most important trophy available.
"I hope I don’t hear any Liverpool fans having a moan this season. There’s not a lot wrong with their team," Merson exclusively wrote in his column for Starsport.

"I know they’ve just lost three of their last four games and gone out of the FA Cup, but they’re going to win the league for the first time in about 30 years!
"To win that takes some doing. It doesn’t matter what happens in the Champions League, it’s the Premier League where it counts.
"The Champions League final was second versus fourth last season and Liverpool lost more games getting there than they did in the whole of the Premier League.

"It’s all about winning the league for them. The hardest thing there is to win – 38 games of graft. The Premier League is the ultimate.
"When you are used to winning games, losing them does affect you, and they lost a big one against Chelsea.
"But the run they were on was always going to end. They weren’t exactly battering teams were they? They fell over the line at home to West Ham.
