. “I still expect Liverpool to go further than Man City this season,” Dunne told Premier Sports after Liverpool’s draw at Craven Cottage. “I think they’ll win the league. “Looking at what Liverpool have won and that group of players that they’ve had, to have only won one Premier League title, I think they’ll be disappointed with it. “If they want to be judged as one of the best sides that the Premier League has seen, which people are talking about them being, they need another league title. “This year there’s been a huge upheaval with Man City’s squad in terms of three or four players leaving and a couple coming in. “Not so much at Liverpool, I know they’ve lost (Sadio) Mane and replaced him with (Darwin) Nunez, but for a league squad I think they’ve got a big opportunity, but that result today surprised me.“ READ NEXT: 'Very clear' - Gary Lineker makes Darwin Nunez prediction after Liverpool goal What Rio Ferdinand did when asked to sign a Liverpool shirt at Craven Cottage Peter Crouch says Liverpool striker will be 'fuming' at Jurgen Klopp decision against Fulham 'I imagined' - Darwin Nunez makes Anfield admission after Liverpool move Gary Neville shows true colours with Liverpool comment that could embarrass him again
