The former Liverpool striker Michael Owen and former Wales international Robbie Savage have stated that Liverpool can win the Premier League.
The duo were speaking during BT Sport‘s coverage of the game and both agreed that the Reds have the ability to put an end to Liverpool’s 25 year wait for a title.
“If they [Liverpool] are consistent, they have a real opportunity at challanging for the title,” Savage told TV Jake Humphrey.
Owen followed up on Savage’s claim but urged caution, citing that the Premier League was allot stronger this season.
“I think they can [win the league], this season the league is a lot stronger but yeah, of course they have a chance.”
Liverpool last won the league back in 1990 under manager Kenny Dalglish. However, the Reds have been unable to win the League title since.
The Merseyside based club are currently fifth in the league with seven points in four games. Jurgen Klopp’s side defeated last season’s champions Leicester City earlier today and take on Chelsea next weekend.
