Jamie Redknapp believes Liverpool FC will ultimately miss out on a first Premier League title this season.

The Reds have been talked up as potential title challengers this season following an exciting summer of investment in Jurgen Klopp’s squad.

Liverpool FC have spent nearly £200m on new players in the summer transfer window to leave Klopp with a squad capable of challenging Manchester City.

The Merseyside outfit signed AS Monaco midfielder Fabinho in a £39m deal before the Reds snapped up Naby Keita in a £48m switch from RB Leipzig.

The 18-time English champions brought in Switzerland international Xherdan Shaqiri in a cut price £13.5m deal from Championship outfit Stoke City.

Liverpool FC spent £67m on Brazil number one Alisson Becker to finally tackle a key problem in the Reds team under Klopp.

Former Reds skipper Redknapp believes Liverpool FC can challenge for the Premier League but will ultimately finish behind Manchester City.

“Manchester City are the outstanding favourites still, of course,” Redknapp told Sky Sports.

“They’re a fantastic side and I feel like they will still come out on top. But Liverpool are in contention.”

Liverpool FC haven’t won the Premier League title in their decorated history but Klopp has been drafted in to restore the Reds to the pinnacle of English football.

The German head coach is still waiting to win his first trophy since the former Borussia Dortmund head coach took over the reins.
