'Can't see any other outcome': Harry Redknapp backs Liverpool in the title race

Liverpool have been heavily backed to win the Premier League by Harry Redknapp.

The 70-year-old former Tottenham previously spoke of his admiration for Jurgen Klopps side and revealed he had a big bet on the Reds winning the Premier League.

Redknapp has now gone one step further speaking at Sportsmail’s ‘A Pint with Piers’ event, he said. “Oh yeah, it’s Liverpool for sure. I can’t see any other outcome than Liverpool winning it.

“I think Man City will chase them for a while and realise Liverpool are not slipping up and I think they will try and put their eggs in one basket and go for the Champions League.”

The iconic manager is certainly confident in his bet on Liverpool. He has good reason for this considering the team’s impressive start to the season.

Klopp’s side now face the tough task of fending off several challengers for the title. Leicester City, Chelsea and Manchester City are all primed to capitalise on any dip in Liverpool form.

The Reds travel to Crystal Palace this weekend hoping to pick up win a twelfth Premier League win of the season. Klopp and co will also look to stretch their unbeaten run to 30 games and join an elite list of clubs to achieve this feat.

Liverpool still have plenty of work to do before more pundits join Redknapp in backing the Reds as a sure thing for the title.
