Phil Neville is confident that Liverpool FC will finish as Premier League champions this season.

The Reds currently find themselves in top spot in the Premier League table as they look to try and win their first major trophy under Jurgen Klopp.

Liverpool FC are two points clear of second-placed Manchester City heading into this weekend’s round of games, but they have played a game less than the Citizens.

The Merseyside outfit have been earning lots of praise for their fine form this season and they have made serious improvements at the back to boast the best defensive record in the Premier League this term.

And former Manchester United defender Neville is backing Klopp’s side to lift the Premier League trophy in May.

Asked whether he thinks Liverpool FC will win the title this term, Neville told Premier League Today: “Yeah.

“I said from probably October or November, I thought this was going to be Liverpool’s season.

“I think they’ve come out of that dip now. I think that win at Bayern Munich was massive for them.

“When I see Liverpool now, all I see is Virgil van Dijk. I see a monster and someone that’s leading the team.

“I think that’s something they didn’t have in their previous title challenges that they’ve had.”

Liverpool FC will return to Premier League action on Sunday when they host Tottenham Hotspur at Anfield.

Manchester City, meanwhile, will take on Fulham the day before, giving Pep Guardiola’s team the chance to move back into top spot in the Premier League table.

Liverpool FC ended up in fourth place in the Premier League table under Klopp last term.
