Gary Neville believes Liverpool FC have a strong enough starting line up to challenge for the Premier League title this season.

The Reds laid down a marker in the title race on Saturday afternoon thanks to a 2-1 win over Tottenham Hotspur at Wembley.

Goals from Georginio Wijnaldum and Roberto Firmino sealed three points for the Merseyside outfit despite Erik Lamela’s late consolation goal.

Liverpool FC are sitting at the top of the Premier League table and level on points with current leaders Chelsea FC after five games.

The Merseyside outfit have already beaten West Ham United, Brighton, Crystal Palace and Leicester City in the Premier League so far.

Liverpool FC haven’t won the Premier League title but have finished as runners up in 2002, 2009 and 2014.

The 18-time English champions have finished in the top four in the last two seasons but Klopp hasn’t been able to transform them into title challengers – so far.

Speaking to Sky Sports about Liverpool FC’s ability to challenge for the Premier League title this season, Neville said:

“I do genuinely think they have a chance and to give themselves the best possible chance, and to remove one of those risks would be to not have too many matches for their best XI.

“Because I do believe that with that best XI on the pitch week in, week out, they have an opportunity to do it.”

The Reds signed AS Monaco midfielder Fabinho, RB Leipzig midfielder Naby Keita, Stoke City playmaker Xherdan Shaqiri and AS Roma goalkeeper Alisson Becker in the summer transfer window.
