Stuart Pearce is tipping Liverpool FC to win the Premier League title this season.

The Reds have made a strong start to the new campaign and have won both of their opening Premier League games to keep themselves in the hunt for the title.

Jurgen Klopp has been earning plenty of praise for the big impact he has had at Anfield since taking over at the club back in October 2015.

However, the Merseyside outfit are still to win their first piece of silverware since Klopp’s appointment at the club, despite them having reached the Champions League final last term.

Liverpool FC will be aiming to be one of the main contenders for the Premier League title this season as they bid to try and challenge Manchester City’s dominance at the top of the table.

And former Manchester City manager Pearce seems to think that the Reds are well-placed to be able to challenge for the top-flight crown this term.

Speaking in an interview with Sky Sports, Pearce said: “I personally think they’ll win the league this year,” he said. “I think it’s a two-horse race between them and City and they might just come out on top.

“I’m seeing a belief within the group that I probably haven’t seen before from the back end of last season. They’re hungry as well. They lost the Champions League final and the manner in the way they lost the final will hurt them.

“They didn’t win the league last year so I think they’ve got the hunger in their belly. They’re chasing that first title for however long and I think that hunger will get them over the line.”

Liverpool FC will look to make it three wins from three in the Premier League this season when they host Brighton and Hove Albion in the top flight at Anfield this weekend.
