Graeme Souness has cast doubt on Liverpool’s Premier League title credentials.

The Reds have started the season strongly, winning seven of their first ten league games.

They are third on 23 points, sitting behind leaders Manchester City and second-placed Arsenal on goal difference alone.

Some believe Jurgen Klopp has finally assembled a side capable of securing Anfield its first top-flight title since 1990, but former manager and midfielder Souness is unconvinced.

He told talkSPORT :”When they are on the front foot, they are fabulous.

“On the front foot, they are as good as anyone – maybe the best – right now. But when the game changes, when you don’t dominate from start to finish, you have got to sense that.

“Maybe the wide midfield players have to play a wee bit narrower, the full-backs don’t wander, and you have got to sense that. It doesn’t have to come from the manager. And I see Liverpool right now and think, is that a fast forward gear from the first minute right to the very end of the game?

“They look a wee bit vulnerable at times when they don’t dominate the game.”
