Cry in the toilet... Former Manchester United defender Patrice Evra praises "top of the table" Liverpool Team

Naby Keita, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, James Milner, and Roberto Firmino left Anfield when their contracts expired. Jordan Henderson and Fabinho also left Liverpool, unable to resist the Saudis’ financial power.

After the mass exodus of midfielders, Liverpool has successfully replaced its midfield with four new players, including Alexis Mac Allister, Dominik Szoboszlai, Wataru Endo, and Ryan Gravenberch, and has been competing for the top spot since the start of the Premier League season.

At the moment, they are at the top of the domestic league standings and have a good shot at winning the championship.

However, former Manchester United defender Patrice Evra is not feeling comfortable with this standings. He said on a TV program that he had to remain neutral, but praised the strong performance of his old rival team during his time at the club.

“I don’t want to answer [about Liverpool going top],”

“We have to be neutral, we work on TV! No, but credit to Liverpool and they deserve it. I think they are a serious contender to win the title.”

“We talk a lot about Manchester City and Arsenal and of course City have two games in hand. But Liverpool, I think, they’re back in business. They’re top of the league and they will keep [there] because they’ve got that consistency. They’ve got a great manager. You see, I’m not that neutral, I’m giving so much credit to Liverpool! Now I’m going to cry in the toilet.”
