After a couple of years of underachieving under Brendan Rodgers, Liverpool appear to have found the golden formula under new boss, Jurgen Klopp. Bringing in an exciting "heavy-metal" style of attacking football, the Reds' new German manager has transformed Liverpool into one of the most entertaining teams to watch in the Premier League - and for all the right reasons too!
But are they genuine title contenders? HITC Sport asked fans of Liverpool's old enemy: Manchester United, for their thoughts on the Reds' title bid.

Some Manchester United fans seemed fairly adamant that the Reds would be finishing in fifth place, just missing out on the Champions League places. Others mentioned 6th. Another mentioned relegation. But one thing seemed certain amongst all the United fans: that Liverpool would finish below United.
Not many United fans seemed too worried about the Reds rise up the table under Jurgen Klopp, with some suggesting sarcastically that it was "their year, it's always their year, next year!"
"They're punching above their weight" admitted another United fan, who seemed to encapsulate the general feeling around Old Trafford. It seems the rivalry between the two clubs hasn't diminished at all, despite both teams' fall from grace over the last year or two.
