Can the Reds win the Premier League title at last? He has little doubt, he says...
"There is little doubt that Liverpool’s time is coming,” he wrote in The Sun. “Not just to win a trophy but to make a serious challenge for the Premier League title again.
"I look at the two teams [Liverpool and Man City] on paper this season and I really do not see a big difference in ability.
" Klopp is yet to win anything with Liverpool, despite reaching three finals. I believe they will change that this season as they head towards a new and exciting era. And with this team they certainly should."
Bold talk from the former England striker, particularly given the fact that Manchester City are only two points behind and Chelsea - and Watford! - also boast maximum points thus far.
