Jamie Carragher delivers verdict on Liverpool’s title hopes this season

Jamie Carragher discusses Liverpool's hopes of winning the Premier League title this season

Jamie Carragher believes that Liverpool have what it takes to win the Premier League title under Jurgen Klopp this season.

The Reds have made a strong start to the new campaign and currently sit in second place in the Premier League table, two points behind leaders Manchester City after seven games.

Liverpool do not have the distraction of European football this season and many are tipping Klopp’s side to be one of the main contenders for the Premier League title this term.

The Merseyside outfit have already beaten the likes of Arsenal, Chelsea and Leicester City this season in a show of their title credentials.

And Carragher believes that Liverpool could be one of the main contenders this season as they look to win the Premier League title for the first time.

Speaking in an interview with The Liverpool Echo, Carragher said: “In terms of winning a league or the cup, you look at the Leicester situation, sometimes it’s not just about what you do but what the other teams do.

“You could have a season, it could be this season, are we the best squad? Probably not but we’ve made a great start.

“In terms of Klopp over these next couple of seasons, he’s been to two cup finals and you hope a manager like that can bring us some trophies, it’s not easy, we’ve had a barren spell.”
