James Milner says the Liverpool squad is happy to let other people talk up their title chances.
Last season Liverpool reached the champions league final, beating Manchester City twice enroute to Kyiv.
Many have talked up Liverpool’s title credentials this season; their dominant display against West Ham in their season opener did not dampen expectations, however, James Milner says the squad is not getting carried away.
Asked if it might be the start of a title-winning campaign, Milner said: “That is for other people to talk about really.”
“We feel we can beat anyone on our day and we have proved that, but it is about having that consistency.”
“We will let other people talk about the challenges, and it is down to us to just go out there and perform, and get as many points as we can.” added Milner
The reds strengthened their team substantially in the transfer window, signing goalkeeper Alisson, midfielders Fabinho and Naby Keita, plus versatile playmaker Xherdan Shaqiri.
Milner added: “We had a very good squad before and the additions we have made are very strong.”
It has been 28 years since Liverpool won the Premier League and on Monday, the Reds travel to Selhurst Park to play Crystal Palace – the team that ended their title hopes in the 14/15 season.
