Harry Redknapp’s one-word response when asked if Liverpool are title contenders

Harry Redknapp delivers his verdict on Liverpool's title hopes this season

Harry Redknapp is convinced that Liverpool have what it takes to win the Premier League title this season.

The Reds have made a strong start to the new campaign under Jurgen Klopp and were 2-1 winners at Swansea at the weekend as they came from a goal down to earn all three points at the Liberty Stadium.

That result left Klopp’s side in the top four and just two points behind leaders Manchester City after seven games of the new season.

Liverpool do not have the distraction of European football this season and will be keen to make that count in domestic competition this term.

The Reds have already recorded impressive victories over the likes of Arsenal, Chelsea and Leicester City this season.

And former Tottenham manager Redknapp is certain that Liverpool are genuine contenders this season.

Asked by talkSPORT if Liverpool can win the title this season, Redknapp replied: “Absolutely.”

He continued: “They have got outstanding players. I just wonder if defensively they are quite strong enough.”
