St John shocked by Liverpool form

St John admits he is “shocked” by the club’s current form.

The 71-year-old said: “It is disappointing because we have been watching this for a number of weeks.

“We have won three in 15 and that is shocking for Liverpool, shocking.

“It is hard to argue a case. Rafa said the season starts today, so OK we have started the season again and we are bottom.

“It is just not good enough and that is our best team. There was no-one on the bench you’d say should be playing.”

He added: “We have seen (Aston) Villa, Tottenham and Man City and they look better than us. I think one of them will pinch that fourth spot.

“You look at the team at the moment and you say they are not good enough for the top four.

“It’s really sad the way things are going at the moment.

“Rafa has got to turn it around before the end of the season. He has got to let the fans see that something is going to happen, that we are not just going to drip points away and end up being also-rans.”
