Pat Nevin believes Liverpool FC need to improve their squad depth in the summer if the Reds are going to challenge Manchester City for the title next season.

The Merseyside outfit are in third place in the Premier League table and three points clear of Tottenham Hotspur in the race to finish in the Champions League qualification spots.

Liverpool FC have a 10-point cushion over Chelsea FC ahead of the Blues’ trip to Burnley on Wednesday night to leave Jurgen Klopp’s men on the brink of a place in the Europe’s top tier next term.

The Reds were the first team to beat Premier League champions Manchester City this season following a thrilling 4-3 victory over the Citizens at Anfield back in February.

Manchester United are the only other team to secure a league win against Pep Guardiola’s side.

Liverpool were 5-1 aggregate winners against Manchester City in the Champions League quarter-finals to get the better of the Citizens at both Anfield and the Etihad Stadium.

However, Nevin believes Liverpool FC require further investment if the Reds are going to challenge Manchester City next term.

“You have to strengthen the squad,” Nevin told Irish radio station Newstalk.

“You look at the bench. You won’t continue to keep the 11 or 13 players fit throughout the season. It won’t happen. It’s a shock they’ve managed to do it after Coutinho left. It won’t happen in a World Cup year.”

Liverpool FC have never won the Premier League but finished in second place in 2002, 2009 and 2014.
