Michael Owen warns Liverpool of title threat next season

Liverpool will face tough competition from their rival teams in the next 2020/21 campaign.

According to former Liverpool man, Michael Owen, the Reds will face tough strife from challengers such as Manchester City, Manchester United and Liverpool in the upcoming season.

“I think they’re  a very, very strong team that’s probably going to be strong for some time,” Owen told Premier League Productions.

“But that’s not to say they can’t be caught. Manchester City are a phenomenal team and if they turn it on we’re going to have a great title race.

“Manchester United are the first team outside those two that spring to mind because they’re improving at a rapid rate.

“Chelsea are showing a lot of intent with their signings. They’ve been banned from signing players for some while but now they’re making a big splash and they’ve got some youngsters coming in.

“Frank Lampard looks like he has the bit between their teeth. There’s lots of teams that look like they could do challenge but I think they’re the main two [as well as City].”

Having said that, Owen is aware of how much talent Klopp has at his disposal, which will give them a great chance of winning a second consecutive top-flight title.

“Look at their team at the moment,” added Owen.

“Of course they have James Milner who is getting on in years but he’s the perfect type of player to have around the dressing room to come off the bench.

“Certain teams like City you can say: ‘Right, Fernandinho is getting on now, the full backs are getting weaker’, there’s certain areas they can improve.

“But I don’t see that with Liverpool I’m not being biased at all but I don’t see players that can come in.

“Maybe there’s players that can come in as cover for striker or cover as left-back but nobody’s saying someone can go straight into the team.”
