What a start it has been to the 2019/20 Premier League season for Liverpool.
Will Liverpool win the Premier League title this season?
The Reds have been flawless so far, racking up a perfect eight wins from eight matches which has left them top of the league going into the second international break.
Considering their eight-point lead already, it’s hard to look past Liverpool as the early-season favourites for the Premier League title.
Interestingly, former Liverpool goalkeeper Chris Kirkland thinks they are in pole position. He has even gone as far as saying that he thinks the title will be heading to Anfield in May, and questioned Manchester City’s defence.
“I think with City’s injury problems they’ve got at the back, [Aymeric] Laporte is a huge miss, Vincent Kompany is a massive miss for them. At the back you can get at them,” said Kirkland (via Sky Sports).
“When we play them, if we can take points off them then all of a sudden you’re talking double figures. Can you see us losing four or five games this season? Not the way we’re playing.”
Several football fans have reacted to Kirkland’s claim, and most of them – including Liverpool fans – agree that it is far too early in the campaign to be making such a bold statement…

Yeah because it’s not like we’re only 8 games in, the lead is only 8 points and not like there’s still 90 points to play for
