Liverpool insiders reportedly believe that they can challenge Manchester City to the Premier League title after this impressive start to the season.

According to the Mirror, figures within Anfield are now starting to think that an unprecedented charge for English football’s biggest prize could be on the cards this campaign.

With City the clear favourites for the title having won their opening four matches, Liverpool face quite the challenge already despite good performances and results of their own in the Premier League.

Liverpool currently find themselves as one of four clubs on ten points in the Premier League standings, yet having already beaten Newcastle United and Aston Villa, things are looking up.

If the Reds can avoid another injury crisis that plagued Jurgen Klopp last year, there’s a real chance that Liverpool could challenge for the Premier League.

Moreover, keeping Mohamed Salah at Anfield might prove to be key in Liverpool going from strength to strength as the season progresses, even if UEFA Europa League football is a factor.

The Premier League title is City’s to lose despite how early the season is, yet for Liverpool, there should be faith within the squad that they can challenge.

The Reds have started the season well and have arguably endured the hardest start to any of the big-six in the division so far.

And with Liverpool managing to keep hold of Salah until January, there’s every chance that the Reds can build from what they have already done this season, with City firmly in their sights.
