Robbie Savage delivers Liverpool title verdict
By Harvey Byrne
Robbie Savage has stated that he believes Liverpool can win the Premier League title this season.
The outspoken pundit believes that the Reds are the team to watch this season, as they sit at the top of England’s top flight after 11 fixtures.
They are currently one point clear of second placed Chelsea playing the same amount of fixtures and they are currently well on course to improve on their eighth placed finish from last season.
Now, Match of the Day pundit and former Premier League midfielder Savage believes they can go all the way and claim their first title.
“Chelsea were absolutely scintillating when they put five past Everton — but Liverpool are the team to watch this season,” wrote Savage in his column for the Mirror.

“No arguments, the Blues’ performance last weekend was outstanding. They dismantled a team who had started brightly under Ronald Koeman.
“But it seems that anything Antonio Conte can do, Jurgen Klopp can do even better – and Liverpool could have scored 10 against Watford the next day before they settled for just six.
“Back in August, I tipped Klopp to lead the Liver bird back into the top four , but now I actually believe they can win the title this season.
“Of course, we are only 11 games in and there is a long way to go.”
The Reds have not won England’s top flight since 1990 under Kenny Dalglish.
They have finished in second place four times over the past 26 years and they will now be keen to ensure they can go the full distance.
Liverpool will travel to St Marys next after the international break to face Claude Puel’s Southampton, who are currently placed in 10th.
