Liverpool legend Aldridge: Top 4 failure will wreck transfer plans

Liverpool legend John Aldridge says top four failure will wreck their summer transfer plans.

He wrote for the Sunday World: "Liverpool's train crash of a season needs to get back on track at Sheffield United tonight and the time has come for Jurgen Klopp to show some invention.

"Thiago Alcantara has struggled to settle into the team and the front three of Mo Salah, Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino have been horribly off the boil

"All in all, it adds up to a nightmare that leads me to conclude Liverpool will NOT finish in the Premier League's top four this season, and that would be a disaster for the club.

We all know the club don't have much money to spend because they were very reluctant to sign defenders in the January transfer window, so imagine what will happen if they lose the money from the Champions League next season?

Klopp may not be given any money to spend this summer. In that scenario, who knows what might happen.

So, I want to see Liverpool's players and their brilliant manager showing something different against Sheffield United tonight, whether that's a change in formation or a shift in approach."
