Liverpool are having a stellar season across all competitions thus far.

The Reds currently sit on 45 points which places them on top of the Premier League table.

They find themselves three points ahead of second-placed Manchester City. Liverpool will be hoping to extend their lead against Bournemouth at the weekend.

Liverpool have a fairly impressive record when it comes to facing Bournemouth.

The Reds have triumphed in 14 out of their last 17 ties with the Cherries, with their largest win being the 9-0 demolition of the side last season.

When looking at both Liverpool and Man City’s next five top flight games, Jurgen Klopp’s men seem to have the harder run in.

However, in previous seasons, this has deterred the Reds and they’ve always managed to come out of the other side of a difficult run triumphant.

This season, Liverpool have been fairly dominant in each of the games that they have played.

This is largely due to the new additions that were made over the summer.

The main problem area within the club over the last couple of seasons has been the midfield.

Although it has been heavily invested in over the years, due to injuries or players just not being in good form, it has been a notably weak area within the squad.

Hence why the additions of Alexis Mac Allister, Dominik Szoboszlai, Wataru Endo and Ryan Gravenberch have all been important.

Endo was arguably the most surprise addition to the team during the transfer window.

His profile was against that of which Klopp usually goes for as he is 30-years-old and hadn’t yet played for an elite level club.

However, he has since proved the doubters wrong and showcased why Klopp decided to add him t his team over summer.

Does Peter Crouch think Liverpool will win the league?

Former Reds player, Peter Crouch, has been a fan of the club since joining Liverpool from Portsmouth in 2005.

He has always spoke highly of his time with the Anfield club and has something of an affinity with the fans.

Speaking on the That Peter Crouch Podcast, Crouch spoke on Liverpool’s title chances this season.

I think Liverpool will do it,  it’s one of those where you don’t want to say it, you know what I mean, [but] yeah, I feel like it, just hopefully they just [win it].”

Many have their doubts about Liverpool’s longevity due to still being in each of the competitions available to them.

However, the Reds’ form makes it feel as if this season is Liverpool’s time to reclaim the title.

Once Mohamed Salah has returned from AFCON, Liverpool will have an even stronger chance of pipping Man City to the top of the table.
