Liverpool's offside trap could undo them despite their form, according to John Giles.
Giles was in studio to discuss this week's football action, which included Liverpool's comprehensive 2-0 win over Manchester United at Anfield on Sunday.
While Liverpool sit atop the league - and Giles believed that they should have scored four and five that day - he also thinks that their style of play may undo them.
Giles on Liverpool
"I don't think they are successful all the time with it. Because they are such a good team, they are going to be attacking more than anyone else," said Giles.
"But there have been a few occasions in matches where they have got away with it. It is not necessary.
"They have got players like Gomez and Robertson, these are quick players. I have seen it on a few occasions when they have got away with it.
"There has been times when someone will come from deep and they will get in.
"It is not a ploy, it is a weakness.
"You are taking the chance all the time. If you were to defend properly, which is to drop off with the pace that they have, opponents would have no chance of scoring a goal."
Liverpool to be undone?
Giles believes that this will end up having some, if not a mortal, impact on Liverpool's season.
"I guarantee you that by the end of the season they will lose one, two or three goals from that.
"What I am saying is that there is no need to do it, with the players that they have.
"I have never been in favour of playing this offside trap. Unless someone is taking advantage; not getting back when they should be."
