Harry Redknapp delivers blunt verdict on Liverpool’s title hopes

The former Spurs boss talks up Liverpool in the Premier League title race

Harry Redknapp believes Liverpool have a strong enough squad to win the Premier League title this season.

The Reds missed the chance to cement their place at the top of the Premier League table following a goaless stalemate with Southampton at St Mary’s on Saturday afternoon.

Liverpool wasted 15 chances on the south coast as Joel Matip and Roberto Firmino squandered their best opportunities to make the breakthrough in the Premier League clash.

Chelsea hoisted themselves into top spot ahead of Liverpool thanks to Diego Costa’s first-half winner in a 1-0 victory over Middlesbrough at the Riverside Stadium on Sunday afternoon.

Speaking about Jurgen Klopp’s on BT Sport’s Premier League Tonight show, former Spurs boss Redknapp backed Liverpool to win the top-flight crown.

“Liverpool can win the league. They have the squad that can do it,” Redknapp said.

Liverpool signed seven players in the summer transfer window after the Reds finished in eighth place in the Premier League table in Klopp’s first season in charge at Anfield.
