Andy Robertson believes Liverpool FC could be in a battle with up to seven clubs in the Premier League title race this season.

The Reds are looking to win their first Premier League title after Jurgen Klopp’s side narrowly missed out last term.

Manchester City finished a point ahead of Liverpool FC to win the top-flight crown despite the Reds losing one of their 38 games.

Klopp’s men finished with the best defensive record in the league but their 2-1 loss to Manchester City at The Etihad in January proved to be the difference.

The Reds went on to win the Champions League in Madrid thanks to a 2-0 victory over Tottenham Hotspur courtesy of goals from Mohamed Salah and Divock Origi.

Liverpool FC and Manchester City have been the quietest clubs in the transfer window as Arsenal, Chelsea FC, Manchester United and Everton have all added some big names to their team.

Robertson warned that Liverpool FC shouldn’t expect a two-horse title race with the five clubs below them all capable of putting together a potential challenge.

“If you are around City or level with them then you must be really good,” Robertson told BBC Sport.

“I see all the other four teams and Everton looks really ambitious, bringing in lots of players. So many things can happen.

“I would like to say again that it is us and City – but this time us on top. But we cannot know.”

Liverpool FC have signed Dutch teenager Sepp van den Berg, Fulham’s record breaker Harvey Elliott and West Ham goalkeeper Adrian in the summer transfer window.

The Reds have finished in second place on four different occasions in the title race.
