Liverpool FC look like a title-winning team, Paul Ince has claimed.

The Reds have made an impressive start to the Premier League season following five successive victories.

Liverpool FC are level on points with Premier League leaders Chelsea FC to prompt talk of a title challenge.

The Merseyside outfit edged to a 2-1 win over title rivals Tottenham Hotspur to lay down a marker.

Liverpool FC squandered a 2-0 lead to allow Paris Saint-Germain to level with six minutes to go at Anfield.

Roberto Firmino netted a late winner to secure three points against the Ligue 1 champions in added time.

The Reds managed to grind out the win to sit at the top of Champions League Group C.

Former Liverpool FC striker Ince believes the Reds look like a title-winning team.

“It’s not all about three or four nil wins. Sometimes it’s those tough, hard to grind out results, like their away game at Leicester,” Ince told Paddy Power.

“That’s how you know you’re seeing a title-winning side.

“Titles are won when you don’t necessarily play well – but still come out with three points. That’s like the teams I played in when I was at Manchester United. A lot of teams would’ve settled for a point and a draw at home to PSG, but Jurgen Klopp wanted to get the winner and go full throttle.

“That’s impressive and frightening for their opponents. It shows the mindset of Liverpool this campaign, they won’t take no for an answer.

Liverpool FC signed AS Monaco midfielder Fabinho, RB Leipzig star Naby Keita, Stoke playmaker Xherdan Shaqiri and AS Roma goalkeeper Alisson Becker.

The Reds will take on Serie A giants Napoli in their next Champions League fixture at Anfield following their winning start.

Jurgen Klopp’s side are looking to win their first peice of silverware under the German head coach following his appointment in October 2015.
