Former Manchester United defender Patrice Evra has named Liverpool as a serious title contender capable of lifting the Premier League title at the end of the season.

Jurgen Klopp’s side now sit top of the table, five points ahead of Manchester City and two points ahead of Arsenal after match day 19 – with City having one outstanding game.

Speaking on Amazon Prime, Patrice Evra said: “Credit to Liverpool and they deserve it. I think they are a serious contender to win the title.

“We talk a lot about Manchester City and Arsenal and of course Man City have two games in hand. Liverpool, I think, they’re back in business.

“They’re top of the league at the moment and they could stay there because they’ve got that consistency. They’ve got a great manager.”
