Liverpool have won just two of their opening seven games of the season and slumped to an embarrassing 4-1 defeat to Napoli at the Stadio Diego Armando Maradona on Wednesday night in the Champions League.


The Reds have looked subpar throughout the opening weeks of the campaign and the team have looked disjointed from front to back.



Injuries in the middle of the park have hamstrung them but Warnock feels Liverpool’s pressing style has been dysfunctional this season.


He insisted that if the players are not on song and are not following the right pressing tempo, Liverpool are easy to play through and that has meant they have dropped points against the teams they should have beaten.



The former Liverpool star said on LFC TV: “When Liverpool are at it, everyone is on song, they are all following the right tempo and everyone presses at the right time.


“But quite often when they are not, it can be quite easy to play through and that’s a concern when you are playing the likes of Fulham, Crystal Palace and Everton.



“Realistically, they should be turning teams over and should be beating them and it’s not being disrespectful, but when you look at the quality within the squad.


“But again, if they are not quite at the races doing those presses, it doesn’t work.”


Liverpool have a home game lined up this weekend when they will host Wolves at Anfield before taking on Ajax in the Champions League next week.
