Former Arsenal star Merson does not see Liverpool losing more than five Premier League matches this season.

Merson wrote in The Daily Star: “How many games are Liverpool going to lose this season? Not more than four or five, I should think.”

Challenging for the Premier League title

Liverpool have a strong squad, and the Reds are certainly in a great position this season to challenge the likes of Manchester City and Manchester United for the Premier League title.

It is not going to be easy, but the Reds have some wonderful players such as Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane, and the Anfield faithful should be confident.
