Tony Pulis insists he is not surprised to see Liverpool challenging for the Premier League title this season.

The Reds make the trip to Crystal Palace on Monday night as Brendan Rodgers’s side look to bounce back from a 2-0 loss to title rivals Chelsea at Anfield last weekend.

Is it a surprise they are title contenders? No, not when you look at Daniel Sturridge and the quality they have got up front

Liverpool have been the surprise package in the title race after their 11-game winning run brought them to the brink of a first-ever Premier League title success.

However, Palace manager Pulis believes Liverpool’s firepower in the shape of Daniel Sturridge and Luis Suarez meant the Reds would always be challenging for honours.

“I think there has been a lot of investment in Liverpool,” Pulis said.

“I think people forget. When Kenny (Dalglish) was there, they spent over £100m. I think Brendan has spent over £100m, they are paying players in excess of hundreds of thousands of pounds a week.

“I think the biggest bonus for Liverpool has been the fact that they have had no cup competitions or Europe to worry about so they could focus from week to week so that certainly helps you.

“Is it a surprise they are title contenders? No, not when you look at Daniel Sturridge and the quality they have got up front. They will score goals.”
