Liverpool have been in stellar form in recent weeks and Eamon Dunphy believes they are serious contenders in the title race.

The Reds are now 5/1 second favourites behind Manchester City in the betting and their high-intensity style is earning a lot of admirers.

Speaking on Game On on RTE 2FM, the former Republic of Ireland international was bullish about Liverpool's chances of of ending their long wait for a league title.

A big litmus test of their title credentials will come against Manchester United on October 17 at Anfield and Dunphy is prediction a difficult night for Jose Mourinho and his team.

"He's going to do great things with Liverpool. I don't want to say I told you so," he said.

"They are just one good defender short of being champions and I think they will eat Manchester United when they play in a couple of weeks time.... and when they get their hands on Guardiola, they'll eat him as well.

"I think it is very exciting for Liverpool. They have bought well, (Sadio) Mane is a super player.

"The way the team plays, the confidence they show, the lack of fear which is something Guardiola gives his teams as well.. we have great coaches in the Premier League.

"I'll be very confident that Liverpool will be bang there in the end."
