Richard Dunne believes Liverpool FC will need to improve their consistency over the course of the season to challenge Manchester City next term.

The Reds have undoubtedly made progress under Jurgen Klopp in the German head coach’s second full season in charge at Anfield.

Liverpool FC are in third place in the Premier League table and four points adrift of Manchester United in the race to finish as runners up.

The Merseyside outfit are in the Champions League semi-finals following a 5-1 aggregate win against Premier League leaders Manchester City.

The Reds were 3-0 winners against the Citizens at Anfield before Liverpool FC were 2-1 winners at Manchester City in the return leg.

The Eastlands outfit won the Premier League title last weekend and Pep Guardiola’s side are 17 points ahead of third-placed Liverpool FC.

Former Manchester City defender Dunne underlined the gap between Liverpool FC and the Premier League champions.

“It’s just whether they have that consistency over the season,” Dunne told Irish radio station Newstalk.

“Maybe he has settled on a goalkeeper and is happy with his centre-halves so that can push them forward.”

Liverpool FC signed Netherlands international Virgil van Dijk in a club record £75m deal from Southampton in the January transfer window.

The Reds finished in fourth place in Klopp’s first full season in charge at the Anfield outfit.
