Season at glance
The Reds were also thrashed 5-0 by Manchester City last month.
Asked by bookmaker Coral which team had left him feeling underwhelmed this season, Shearer responded: ‘Liverpool. Going forward, creating chances, they haven’t scored enough goals.
‘And defensively they’ve been as poor as ever. Nothing has changed from last season.
‘I was at the game when they played Newcastle. Same old problems defensively, had a lot of the ball in the first half and should have killed the game off.
‘One great goal from [Philippe] Coutinho but other than they were poor going forward.
‘They’ve got no chance of winning the Premier League playing like that.’
