Campbell tips Liverpool for Premier League title on one condition
Kevin Cambell has claimed Liverpool could challenge for the Premier League title if their attacking trio deliver against their top-four rivals.
The former Arsenal striker, speaking exclusively to Football Insider, suggested Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino would determine if the Reds are up there at the end of the season.
The trio harked back to their famous title triumph with a stunning counter-attacking goal against Norwich on Saturday (August 14th).
The star-studded front three registered 42 league goals between them last term.
They managed to net 46 times during their title-winning 2019/20 season.
Campbell believes recapturing that form will be key for any Liverpool success in the top flight this season.

He told Football Insider‘s Ben Wild: “If Liverpool are going to go anywhere close to winning the league, those three have to be hitting the highs they did a couple of seasons ago.
“They dispatched Norwich pretty comfortably. Norwich had a good go, but Liverpool were just ruthless and way too strong.
“When they won the league, the front three were the difference in the crunch fixtures against the big teams. They came up with all the answers and all the goals.
“It remains to be seen how they can go against a bigger team this season. It’s certainly an encouraging start.”
Salah ran Tottenham’s Harry Kane close for the Golden Boot last season, missing out by one goal after netting 22 times.
Diogo Jota also joined the Merseyside giants last summer and contributed nine goals in 19 appearances.
The Portuguese forward has added some depth to the front line.
However, Mane and Salah are expected to play in the African Cup of Nations from January.
