John Barnes has told Sky Sports that Liverpool will win the Premier League title this season.
The Liverpool legend has backed the Reds to get the better of Manchester City in the title race this campaign.
Pep Guardiola’s side have won the league title in the English top flight for the past two seasons.
During the 2018-19 campaign, City clinched the Premier League title by just one point, with Liverpool pushing them until the final day of the campaign.
Liverpool have not won the title in England in the Premier League era, and club legend Barnes has predicts that it will change this season.
Barnes believes that the Reds winning the Champions League trophy last season will have given them the confidence they need to win the Premier League title.
Barnes told Sky Sports: “Last season, as well as Liverpool were playing right to the end, I felt that Manchester City would win the league.
“This year I think Liverpool will win the league. They have this determination, this drive, this confidence now that they’ve won a trophy with Jurgen Klopp.”
Liverpool have made a strong start to the season and have actually collected more points than City.
The Reds are at the top of the Premier League table at the moment with 12 points from four matches, two points clear of second-placed and defending English champions City.
The Merseyside outfit have a 100% record in the league this season, and the Anfield faithful must be delighted with how things are going for them so far.
Liverpool will return to action on September 14 when they take on Newcastle United at Anfield in the Premier League.
