Former striker Louis Saha has claimed FIVE teams can win the Premier League title this season.
The Reds are currently top but have already drawn five games and lost once to give their rivals hope of launching title challenges of their own.
A number of teams are within touching distance of Liverpool and Saha believes Man City, Tottenham, Man United and Chelsea will rival Klopp’s charge for the title.
Saha, speaking exclusively to Ladbrokes at its launch of the 5-A-Side Bet on Tottenham v Fulham, said: ‘Liverpool are definitely the ones to beat for the Premier League title this year.
‘Jurgen Klopp has such a great group of players who are eager to win every single game.
‘They have so much strength in depth and you can feel their frustration when things aren’t going their way. It’s a quality a lot of other sides are lacking.
‘It’s a lot more difficult for Man City this season because in terms of creating chances, it feels very much like Kevin De Bruyne is on his own now since David Silva left the club.
‘There’s now less guarantee in that Man City side winning games and ultimately the title than there is in Liverpool.
‘I’d probably say there are four or five teams in with a genuine chance of winning the title.
‘I’m actually loving the competitiveness of the Premier League this season. Football needs it.
‘When you look at leagues like Spain and France where it is always the same one or two teams – it’s great to see such a wide-open league in England.’
