Michael Owen believes that Liverpool FC will be one of the main contenders for the Premier League title this season.

The Reds have made a strong start to the new campaign and they claimed their third straight win in the top flight on Saturday when they sealed a 1-0 victory over Brighton and Hove Albion.

Jurgen Klopp is aiming to steer the Reds to a genuine Premier League title challenge this season as the Liverpool FC boss looks to win his first trophy since taking over at Anfield.

Liverpool FC were busy in the summer transfer window and brought in four new players as Klopp moved quickly to strengthen his squad ahead of the new campaign.

Goalkeeper Alisson Becker was one of the main arrivals at Anfield as the Reds parted with a world-record fee for a goalkeeper to bring him to the club last month.

And Owen seems to be convinced that the Reds will be up there challenging for the title after they moved top of the table on Saturday.

Speaking in an interview with BT Sport before Liverpool FC’s win over Brighton, Owen said: “Well I definitely think so (it’s a great chance to win the league).

“I thought that at the start of the season if I’m honest. Of course Manchester City went into the season as favourites.

“But certainly Liverpool, certainly with their signings as well.

“They’ve strengthened the spine of the team, they’ve strengthened areas they really needed to strengthen, goalkeeper in particular.

“Everybody’s excited and not only that, they’re playing with a real style at the moment.”

Liverpool FC will take on Leicester City in the Premier League next weekend away from home.
