Steven Gerrard believes Liverpool FC are in a strong position to win the Premier League title this season.

The Reds have made a strong start to the campaign following six successive Premier League victories ahead of Saturday’s trip to Chelsea FC.

They came from a goal down to earn a 1-1 draw against Maurizio Sarri’s men in the Premier League clash at Stamford Bridge on Saturday night.

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

Jurgen Klopp’s summer signings have helped to improve the Liverpool FC squad, crucially adding more depth to to his bench as the German head coach looks to win his first trophy.

Gerrard was part of Liverpool FC teams that finished in second place in 2002, 2009 and 2014 under Gerard Houllier, Rafael Benitez and Brendan Rodgers during his Reds career.

The former Liverpool FC captain Gerrard talked up the Merseyside outfit’s ability to challenge for the Premier League title against Chelsea FC and Manchester City in the current campaign.

“This is a lot stronger than the team I played in,” Gerrard is quoted as saying by Metro.

“Liverpool have looked a different animal since [Virgil] van Dijk came in and Alisson brings more composure and trust.

“In time that’ll be the big difference – the front three will always score goals and the midfielders back them up too. But it’s all been about trying to improve defensively and they’re very close.”

Liverpool FC finished in fourth spot in the Premier League table in the last two seasons to find some consistency.

The Reds haven’t won the Premier League and their last top-flight crown came under Kenny Dalglish in 1990.

The Merseyside outfit will take on Napoli in the Champions League this week on Wednesday night.
