Gerard Houllier believes Liverpool are “definitely good enough” to win the Premier League title this season.
The former Reds manager has backed Jurgen Klopp to end the Merseyside club’s title drought and lift their first English crown since 1990.
Houllier managed Liverpool for a six-year period earning six trophies and guiding them to a famous treble winning season of 2001, when they lifted the FA Cup, League Cup and UEFA Cup.
But the Frenchman has praised current manager Klopp’s style of play and backed his former side to lift the Premier League trophy.
“They’re entertaining but also really efficient,” Houllier told Soccerex as quoted by the Liverpool Echo. “You only have to see with the number of goals they score, they have a new philosophy and I really like the coach.
“The best is yet to come. They are definitely good enough (to win the title).”
Klopp’s side thrashed newly-promoted Hull 5-1 on Saturday to pick up their third consecutive league win of the season.
The German has guided Liverpool to victories away at Arsenal, and Chelsea, including a 4-1 thumping of Premier League champions Leicester City at Anfield.
As a result the Merseyside club are fourth in the league with 13 points after six games, five points off Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City who top the table and boast a 100% record so far this season.
The Reds will now travel to Wales to take on Francesco Guidolin’s Swansea on Saturday afternoon.
