The transfer business of Liverpool this summer has made them the closest challengers to Manchester City for the title of the Premier League in this season. This is the verdict of Martin Tyler the legendary commentator of Sky Sports. In this transfer window, the Liverpool has spent more than £175m on new recruitments.
For the title, the bookies are having them as their second favorite; the City is the first choice as they have finished 19 points clear at the top of the last term. Tyler says the competitors for the top spots are “works in progress”, and this includes Chelsea and Arsenal, who have got new managers. So, he thinks the Liverpool is in a great position and this is the best time for them to end their wait of 28-year for the league title.
When asked, so according to you they are going to be their main rivals. He said “To me, it is still extraordinary that since 1990, Liverpool haven’t won the league. “The other teams are all works in progress. I am very sure you have done a Jose Mourinho story today and everyone seems to be doing the same. “Spurs have not signed anybody; Chelsea and Arsenal are under the new management.”
