Jurgen Klopp has given his take on who Liverpool will be fighting with for the Premier League title this season, including Arsenal and Everton in the fray.
The Reds face their biggest challenge of the season so far when they travel to Manchester City on Sunday.
Pep Guardiola’s side were the nearest contenders last season, finishing 18 points behind the Anfield side.
Liverpool are leading the way once again after seven games, five points ahead of 10th-placed City who have a game in hand.
But the Reds boss believes there will be other teams competing for the title this season.

Speaking in his pre-match press conference ahead of the City game, Klopp said: “For me, each season starts at nil.
“All have the same chance and it’s about fighting as a team how lucky you are with injuries etc. A ‘two-horse race’ is a phrase I’ve never thought.
“Only interested in one horse, us. Rest can do what they want.
“Arsenal, Leicester, Spurs, Everton, unfortunately, all really good. Always the same.

“We all fight for the CL spots and when you are close to that you can be champions. Always the same. Not sure who will be the ‘top horse’ this season.”
Mikel Arteta’s Gunners enjoyed getting some winning momentum this season, most recently winning at Manchester United’s ground for the first time in 14 years.
While their north London rivals – managed by Jose Mourinho – have not lost a league game since the start of the season.
