Former Tottenham manager Harry Redknapp believes that Liverpool can win the Premier League this season, especially after Kevin De Bruyne picked up an injury.
The Belgian attacker could be out for three months (h/t Daily Star) with a knee injury and Redknapp claims we can push Manchester City all the way.
Redknapp was quoted by talkSPORT (h/t Daily Star) as saying:
“I fancy Liverpool this year.
“I like the look of them. I think they will run Manchester City very close.
“City will be favourites, but if Kevin de Bruyne is out for a few months that’s a big blow.
“I think Liverpool could mount a real challenge this year.”
The former Spurs manager also praised our attacking options. Besides our front-three, Redknapp spoke highly of Daniel Sturridge and Xherdan Shaqiri.
Jurgen Klopp‘s energy on and off the pitch was another aspect that Redknapp touched upon.
“They seem to have a great spirit there, the manager is a like Pep, he’s got a great personality and the players seem to like him.
“I think this could be Liverpool’s year to win a championship again.”
The Reds started the season in fine fashion with a 4-0 win over West Ham United. We also bought four quality players in the transfer window to strengthen the team. Two of the new signings, Naby Keita and Alisson, started in the win over the Hammers.
Redknapp has rightly said that we have a strong team this year and if we play to our best ability, trophies will be coming to Anfield this season.
