Liverpool’s new signing Nathaniel Clyne has tipped Liverpool for the EPL title citing the new addition and quality of the team as the rationale behind it. Liverpool finished sixth last season despite splashing the cash on a number of players in a bid to improve the quality of the team. Last season’s disappointing performance came on the heel of an impressive second-place finish the season before it and many has questioned the readiness of the club to go all the way.
But England international full-back Clyne, who moved from Southampton to Anfield for £12.5 million during the off-season, believes the Merseyside club can end their 25-year drought for league success this term.
“Two seasons ago, Liverpool were pushing and nearly won the league, so we’re not too far away and with the additions to the team this year, we are looking to push on again,” Clyne said.
“Hopefully we can push for the title this season.
“You can see with the team and the quality that we have got that we can have a special season.”
Liverpool begin their Premier League campaign at Stoke City on Sunday, having lost 6-1 at the Britannia Stadium on the final day of the 2014-15 campaign.
