Claudio Ranieri has suggested we will be fighting for the Premier League title this season.
The quiet Italian should know better than most — he guided Leicester to one of sport’s most unlikely triumphs as his side won the title in stunning fashion last season.
In an interview with BBC Radio Leicester, he admitted we couldn’t only fight for the title, but we are one of his favourites to win it! Praise indeed.
The quote was made on live radio, but the official BBC Leicester Sport Twitter account made it public knowledge.
CR: “Liverpool is one of my favourites to win the league. They are ready to fight for the title”

Question is — does he really believe that or is he trying some early season mind games against Klopp?
More importantly, is he right? After all, we have no European football and can spend a lot more time on the training pitch… What do you think? Let us know…
