Former Liverpool midfielder Charlie Adam has outlined the Reds' Premier League credentials by stating that they are "one or two players from the title".
The Merseysiders, who finished fourth last term, have spent upwards of £175m on new signings this summer.
"Liverpool are one or two players from the title," Adam, now at Stoke City, told BBC Sport. "[Jurgen Klopp] has added quality to the squad, I still think they could do with another centre-half.
"The goalkeeper situation was a big problem for them last season. He has seen that problem and got that deal done. [Alisson] is going to be worth six to eight points over the season. It adds a total belief and confidence."
Liverpool last won the English top-flight championship in 1990.
