Jose Enrique is tipping Liverpool FC to win the Champions League and the Premier League this season.

The Reds are in a strong position in the Premier League table following eight successive victories to start the season.

Liverpool FC haven’t put a foot wrong in the title race so far after claiming key victories over Arsenal, Chelsea FC and Leicester City.

Jurgen Klopp’s men have capitalised on Manchester City’s poor form after the Citizens lost to Norwich City and Wolverhampton Wanderers.

Liverpool FC are looking to win their first Premier League title this term after finishing a point behind Manchester City on 97 points last season.

The Reds did win the Champions League crown thanks to a 2-0 victory over Tottenham Hotspur in the Uefa showpiece in Madrid.

Former Liverpool FC defender Enrique believes the Reds are capable of winning both competitions this term.

“The year I finished with Liverpool is when Klopp came. He manages the club completely, he does everything,” Enrique told the Liverpool Echo. “The way they are playing right now is amazing, he has improved every player in every position.

“Hopefully they win another title. Last year it was the Champions League, the year before they were unlucky and the year before they were unlucky as well.

“Hopefully this year it is the league and the Champions League as well. I think they will want to fight for everything, they are one of the top teams in the world.

“I am so proud to say I played for them.”

Liverpool FC have reached the last two Champions League finals as they bid to reach the European Cup showpiece for the third successive season.

The Reds lost 3-1 to Real Madrid in Kiev in 2018 in a final marred by Mo Salah’s injury and Loris Karius’ two mistakes.

Liverpool FC were 2-0 winners against Spurs 12 months later when Salah and Divock Origi got on the score sheet.
