Harry Redknapp believes Jurgen Klopp and Liverpool could be left disappointed in the top-four race this season.

The Reds finished in eighth place in the Premier League last term after Klopp took over the reins at Anfield from Brendan Rodgers in October following a below-par start to the 2015/16 campaign.

Klopp managed to lead Liverpool to two cup finals in his first seven months in charge but the Reds lost to Manchester City on penalties in the League Cup before a 3-1 defeat by Sevilla in the Europa League.

The Liverpool manager has already signed seven new players in the summer transfer window thus far, including Mainz goalkeeper Loris Karius, Southampton forward Sadio Mane and Netherlands midfielder Georginio Wijnaldum.

However, former Tottenham Hotspur manager Redknapp has warned that one club with a big budget will miss out on a top-four finish given the increased competition in the Premier League and has suggested that it could be Liverpool.

“I think Liverpool have almost dropped out of the top four,” Redknapp told BetSafe.

“It’s very difficult because there are six or seven teams next year and three of them are going to be very disappointed, big managers, big budgets and everything else that goes along with it and they’re suddenly going to have disappointing seasons.”

Klopp has also signed Estonia captain Ragnar Klavan, veteran goalkeeper Alex Manninger, Schalke centre-half Joel Matip and Serbian midfielder Marko Grujic this summer.
