Former Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho believes Liverpool could be serious title challengers this season.

The new Inter Milan coach said Rafael Benitez has assembled a team which can now push Manchester United, Chelsea and Arsenal further in the title race.

“It is time for Liverpool to make their move in the Premier League,” Mourinho wrote in his column in the Daily Telegraph on Saturday.

“I honestly believe this could be Liverpool's year.

“Rafa Benitez arrived in England at the same time as I did and is beginning his fifth year at the club.

“It has been the same group of players and the same management structure for the past four years.

“Weaknesses are exposed in that time frame and dealt with.

“It is impossible to win the championship without a world-class goalkeeper and a world-class striker – and Liverpool have both.

“Last season, when the club bought Fernando Torres, the spine of the team was completed: Pepe Reina, Jamie Carragher, Steven Gerrard and Torres.”
