Plenty of Liverpool fans found themselves agreeing with former England manager Steve McClaren after stating the Reds have “subconscious complacency”.

Jurgen Klopp’s side are 22 points clear at the top of the Premier League but have suffered three defeats in their last four games, ending their 44-game unbeaten streak and 27 games without a defeat during the current campaign.

Tuesday’s 2-0 defeat to Chelsea also meant that we can no longer repeat Manchester United’s treble-winning season in 1999, which McClaren was Alex Ferguson’s assistant at the time.

Speaking with Sky Sports, he said that Jurgen Klopp’s side have won the league already. But subconsciously, they have become complacent, in a similar manner to the Red Devils’ team of 1999.

Unsurprisingly, supporters could not but agree with McClaren and made their feelings clear on social media. One fan said that he 100% agrees with him, while another added that he has a point and that the winter break did them no favours.

Was Steve McClaren right?
