Gary Neville: Liverpool FC look like Premier League title winners
Gary Neville says that Liverpool FC are a "title-winning team" following their strong start to the new campaign
Gary Neville says that Liverpool FC are starting to look like Premier League title winners following their solid start to the new season.
The Reds maintained their 100 per cent record in the Premier League this term when they claimed a 3-0 win at Burnley on Saturday evening.
Liverpool FC have also beaten Arsenal, Southampton and Norwich City so far this season to build a two-point lead ahead of Manchester City at the top of the Premier League table.
The Merseyside outfit are aiming to go one step further than they did last season after the finished second in the table and just a single point behind Pep Guardiola’s side last term.
And former Manchester United defender Neville has admitted that he has been pretty impressed by what he has seen from Jurgen Klopp’s men so far this season.
Speaking on his Sky Sports podcast, Neville said: “I was watching Liverpool at Burnley and I had that feeling.
“I said last year I thought they were a championship team. They are a championship team. They are playing at a level that could win the title.
“You watched them at Burnley, and they weren’t brilliant in the first 20 minutes, but they go and get a goal and then a second goal.
“You talk about the clinical element of a team. The defensive bit is right, the attacking bit is right, and the midfield looks solid and experienced.
“They are a title-winning team and they were last year, essentially with what they did.”
Liverpool FC – who lifted the Champions League trophy last term and the Uefa Super Cup last month – will return to Premier League action after the international break when they host Newcastle United at Anfield on Saturday 14 September.
The Reds will then turn their attentions towards their Champions League group stage opener at Napoli on Tuesday 17 September.
