‘Lean’ Liverpool have ‘bigger fish to fry’ than FA Cup, Wright claims

Ian Wright believes Liverpool have “bigger fish to fry” than the FA Cup as they will instead focus on the Premier League and Champions League.

Jurgen Klopp has been Liverpool manager since 2015. He is yet to win a domestic trophy during his time at the club.

The Reds have a good opportunity to alter this during the 2021/22 season. They are set to face Chelsea in the final of the Carabao Cup on February 27.

Liverpool have also progressed to the fifth round of the FA Cup. They beat Cardiff City 3-1 at Anfield on Sunday to advance in the competition.

Wright has suggested that there is “no fat” on Liverpool so they would struggle to push to win every competition they are in:

“I’m not sure Jurgen Klopp will not be trying to win the cups I think the teams he’s had to put out because we’re talking about someone who’s come in to try and win the Premier League and the Champions League,” Wright said (via The Mirror)

“He’s done both but at the same time, this is something he has to add to his cloth. He’s always had a good team to do it. But you have to give credit to the teams that have beaten them. At the same time who he’s put out probably is the strongest without the missing players.

“We know that the way that Liverpool have done business, to even stay in touch with Man City and Chelsea and what they’re having to compete with, the signings they’ve made the players that have come through the academy, the players they’ve bought for the academy to then get into the first team.

“There’s no fat on Liverpool, everything is really lean. They’re trying to keep up with those teams. So sometimes you can see why in the FA Cup they haven’t done well in it because they have bigger fish to fry.

“They’re building something and like I say, they’re doing it properly. They don’t waste their money they buy the right player they target who they want. They get who they want and they all deliver.”
