Jamie Redknapp says the Premier League title is Liverpool FC’s to lose after a dramatic weekend in the English top flight.

Liverpool FC were looking to record their 17th successive Premier League win against Leicester City at Anfield on Saturday afternoon to continue their superb start to the campaign.

Sadio Mane broke the deadlock in the 40th minute at Anfield with a clinical finish before James Maddison levelled for Leicester City with 10 minutes to go.

However, the Reds were awarded a fortuitous penalty in the fifth minute of added time to secure a narrow win against the Foxes and move eight points clear at the top of the table.

Manchester City had the opportunity to close the gap on Sunday afternoon but the Citizens suffered a surprise 2-0 defeat by Wolverhampton Wanderers at The Etihad.

Liverpool FC are eight points clear of the defending champions heading into the international break before the Reds make the trip to Manchester United on Sunday 20 October.

Former Reds captain Redknapp believes Liverpool FC will win the Premier League crown if they can keep key players fit.

“It’s been the perfect weekend, it doesn’t get any better if you’re a Liverpool fan,” Redknapp told Sky Sports.

“It’s Liverpool’s to lose. They’ve just got to keep their heads.

“They’ve been through this before with Brendan Rodgers and last year believing it’d be their year. 30 years is a long time. I think if they keep their heads, keep Van Dijk, keep Mo Salah fit – I do believe it’s Liverpool’s year.”

Liverpool FC have finished in second place on four different occasions under Gerard Houllier, Rafael Benitez, Brendan Rodgers and Klopp.

The Reds were beaten to a first Premier League title in 2002, 2009, 2014 and 2018.
