Liverpool backed to win Premier League and Champions League by Glenn Hoddle

Liverpool can win the Premier League and the Champions League this season thanks to the signings they’ve made the summer.

That is the bold claim of Glenn Hoddle.

The Reds have started the Premier League season in the same vein as last year, winning all three of their matches so far.

Jurgen Klopp’s side looked to be back to their best when they beat Arsenal on Monday 3-1 at Anfield.

Diogo Jota scored on his league debut, while Thiago had an extremely impressive debut against Chelsea a couple of weeks ago.

And Tottenham legend Hoddle insists that they have the make up of a side ready to go and win even more silverware this time out.

“I think they’ve improved the squad no-end, I really do,” Hoddle told BT Sport. “I think Jota came out of the blue, but it’s a very shrewd buy.

“Thiago, well he keeps the ball for fun, and in that Liverpool side, I think they’ve gone up a couple of more gears, that’s why I think they’re my favourites to win the Champions League this year and possibly the Premier League as well.

“It’s a big ask, but that would be an unbelievable achievement if they could do that.

“I think Liverpool are the best team in Europe with the balance in the way they defend and the way they attack, it’s not just all about attacking with Liverpool – they’re solid defenders.

“We’ve seen Fabinho go in the back four the other day, he was outstanding. They’ve got options all around the pitch. Players like Oxlade-Chamberlain, they’ve got a depth now, he’s a great player, but he hasn’t had a chance.

“They’ve really got a squad there that I think could win the Premier League and the Champions League.”

Liverpool took a small step back when they lost to Arsenal in the Carabao Cup on penalties on Thursday night.

They will look to get back to winning ways on Sunday when they travel to Aston Villa.
