Ryan Giggs has questioned whether Liverpool have a goalkeeper good enough for a Premier League title challenge this season – but still expects the Reds to be one of the main contenders.

The Reds have made a strong start to the new campaign under Jurgen Klopp and have won two of their opening three games to leave them second in the table behind high-flying Manchester United.

Liverpool boosted their goal difference with an impressive 4-0 thrashing of Arsenal at Anfield in their most recent game as Klopp’s men made a solid start to the new campaign.

Klopp opted to start Loris Karius in goal for the Reds in that game after Simon Mignolet had featured in the opening two matches in the Premier League.

And although Manchester United legend Giggs has been impressed by what he has seen from Liverpool so far this season, he has questioned whether they have what it takes to win the title this term.

Giggs is quoted as saying by ESPN: “I didn’t fancy Liverpool before the season started, but they’ve made some decent buys and kept [Philippe] Coutinho which is a boost for them.

“To win the league you need a top goalkeeper and you wonder have they got that? That would be the only question, but after the business they’ve done I’ve probably changed my mind a little bit and they will be in the mix.”

Liverpool return to Premier League action after the international break with a crunch clash against Manchester City at The Etihad on Saturday lunchtime.

The Reds are also preparing for a return to the group stage of the Champions League later this month after having beaten Hoffenheim in the play-off round.
