Robert Lewandowski believes that Liverpool will challenge Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City for the Premier League title this season.

Liverpool has made a great start to the 2016/17 Premier League season and has notched 16 points from 7 games. Manchester City, Spurs, Arsenal and Liverpool make up the top four with two points separating first and fourth place.

Having beaten the likes of Arsenal, Spurs, Leicester City and Chelsea, Jurgen Klopp’s side has very much established their title credentials. It may be early in the season, but there is no denying that Liverpool is an entirely different animal compared to last season.

A man who knows Jurgen Klopp’s style of play and the results it yields has tipped Liverpool to challenge Manchester City for the Premier League title this season. This man is Robert Lewandowski, and he believes that Klopp can lead the Reds to glory this season.

Lewandowski told Goal, “Under Klopp I think they will be fighting for the title this season.

“Pep and Manchester City will not make it easy for anybody to win the title, but Liverpool have a real chance.

“Without European football it can really help them with being fresh for games and with injuries and, even though Klopp is always smiling, he is ruthless enough to take advantage of that.”

“I have watched some Liverpool games since the arrival of Klopp, and you can see that the players are enjoying playing for him,” he added.

“As a player you know that he totally has your back, he is like a father figure and, because you have that trust in him as a player, it makes you totally open to his methods and his ideas which, in the long term, you always see are for the benefit of your game and for the team.”

Klopp is nearing his one-year anniversary of being Liverpool boss and he is definitely the man to take the Merseyside club all the way. When the German was appointed almost a year ago, I was automatically convinced that Liverpool would do great things.

While European domination may be awhile away, domestic success is entirely within reach this season. Klopp’s mixture of aggression and fluidity has Premier League sides weak at the knees and, if the intensity can be maintained, then the Reds have every chance of success this season.
