Graeme Souness, who made 359 appearances for the club between 1977 and 1984 and led them to the FA Cup during his three years as manager, claims Liverpool have their best chance of winning the title since Kenny Dalglish last led the club to glory in 1990.
He said: “This isn’t just the best chance for Liverpool to win the title since the Premier League started — I’d go further than that. I’d say this is the best chance they’ve had since Kenny’s team last won it.
They’ve got a really healthy group of players — they’re the real deal. They’ve got strength in depth.
Every manager should always be looking to strengthen, no manager’s happy with his lot, but there’s no obvious weakness in this Liverpool side.
It’s only a matter of time before they win something.
If you’re going to win the Premier League this year, you’re going to have to finish above Liverpool. This Liverpool team would give any team from any era a real game.”
“Jurgen Klopp’s a breath of fresh air, he’s different class. Whether he’s responsible or he’s part of a committee that’s responsible, the recruitment over the last three or four years has been sensational.
They’re in great shape. If you’re a supporter of Liverpool, as I am, you’re very excited.
They’ve signed a top goalkeeper. And the back four – Trent Alexander-Arnold, Andy Robertson, Virgil van Dijk and Joe Gomez – they could play a decade together. Van Dijk looks as if he could play until he’s 50. And everyone knows about the midfield and attack.”
“If you’re winning games, particularly if you’re beating the big teams like Liverpool are, that gives you confidence to keep going.
For the Champions League, it’s not always the best team that wins it. You can get unlucky on a couple of nights, or get very lucky on a couple of nights.
So I don’t think they should prioritise that over the Premier League. They have the potential to win both.”
