Former Liverpool goalkeeper David James says he hopes Jurgen Klopp wins the title this season.

James explained how the German specialist turned the Reds into title contenders.

One thing I learnt about Jurgen quite early was the way that he manages that team and the confidence he gives players,” James said.

“When he first came in he didn’t make any signings, and that just instilled a level of confidence in the players that the manager was trusting people to do what they’re capable of, rather than just replace them straight away; which is so often the case in a new management tenure.”

Liverpool are battling it out with Manchester City to win the Premier League title and now hold an eight-point lead over the last season’s champions.
