Rio Ferdinand said on Rio Ferdinand Presents Five that Liverpool need to address three key areas if they are to have another tilt at the title next season.

The former Manchester United captain has said that Jurgen Klopp needs to rediscover the team’s confidence, patch up the squad and recreate that sense of invincibility they built over the past three to four years.

Ferdinand did go on to add that he thinks Liverpool have done well to remain as competitive as they have amid their recent injury woes, but he has concerns about the Reds getting back to the consistency of previous seasons.

Speaking on Rio Ferdinand presents Five, he said: “They’ve got to go and build that confidence.

“They’ve got to patch up the squad and recreate that feeling of invincibility they had which they build over three to four years.

“How long will that take? They know what it feels like. It going to be a shorter time if they get it right, but it’s a big if to rebuilding that.

“I’d have concerns if I was a Liverpool fan about getting back to that consistency and invincibility that they built up. They were unreal.”

Ferdinand is right. But that is just the start. At times, it has seemed like everything that could have gone wrong for Liverpool this season has gone wrong.

Only Andy Robertson, Gini Wijnaldum, Sadio Mane, Mohamed Salah and Roberto Firmino have spent less that three weeks on the sidelines through injury.

So, it doesn’t take a specialist investigation to uncover why Liverpool are struggling. With that said, the three areas Ferdinand highlighted can all be accomplished with minor tweaks.

Yes, Liverpool will require two to three additions this summer – especially in the centre-forward department. Still, this isn’t a team that is too far away from rediscovering the blueprints of recent success.

Indeed, it’s concerning that Liverpool’s dip has become a slump – Jamie Carragher’s analysis on Monday Night Football perfectly reflected this isn’t acceptable.

This season could be a lost cause in terms of tangible success – although, Liverpool can still win the Champions League.

However, if Klopp can counteract everything that has gone wrong this season, then it won’t be long before Liverpool begin to uncover elements of their previous aura of invincibility.
