Ian Rush has backed Liverpool FC to run Manchester City close in the Premier League title race.

The Reds have significantly strengthened their squad in the 2018 summer transfer window ahead of the new Premier League season.

Liverpool FC have signed Fabinho in a £39m deal from Ligue 1 side AS Monaco to help replace Emre Can, who moved to Juventus.

Guinea international Naby Keita sealed a £48m move to Liverpool F.C. from German club Naby Keita to bolster their options in the middle of the park.

Xherdan Shaqiri secured a £13.5m cut price deal from relegated Stoke City to improve their options in the middle of the park.

Liverpool FC signed Brazil number one Alisson Becker in a world record £67m deal from AS Roma to tackle a problem position in the team.

The Reds were 4-0 winners over West Ham United in their opening Premier League game on Sunday.

Former Reds striker Rush is confident that Liverpool FC can push Manchester City all the way in the Premier League title race this season.

Rush told the Second Captains podcast: “Liverpool aren’t a selling club. They are a club that want to win trophies. They have shown intent. They are ready now. They are going to keep their best players.”

Liverpool FC haven’t won the Premier League title, lifting the English top flight title in 1990 before a 28-year drought.

The Reds finished in second place in 2002, 2009 and 2014 under Gerard Houllier, Rafael Benitez and Brendan Rodgers.
