Hamann believes the Reds’ summer spending will also help their cause.

Ex-Germany and Liverpool midfielder Dietmar Hamann has said that with the club making eight transfers this summer and Luis Suarez staying, Champions League football is not unrealistic.

The Reds have not reached the top four of the Premier League since 2009, but Hamann believes that this is as strong as the Merseyside outfit have looked in a long time.

“They’ve given themselves a chance because, last year, they had a terrible start to the season [but] top of the league now, haven’t conceded a goal yet and, with Suarez coming back, you expect them to score more goals,” the 40-year-old told goal.com.

“If they keep the defence as tight as it is, I think the top four is a very realistic target.

“If they continue to improve the way they have over the past 12 months, then I wouldn’t rule out Liverpool being a competitor for the Premier League title in the next four or five years.”

Rodgers’ side are now the only team in the English top flight to have a 100% record, with wins over Stoke City, Aston Villa and Manchester United so far.

The club has also kept three clean-sheets in that time and with defenders Mamadou Sakho and Tiago Ilori being bought in on transfer deadline day, the back four looks very strong.

Likewise £9m signing Simon Mignolet from Sunderland has been impressive in goal and securing Chelsea’s Victor Moses on a season’s long loan will give the side another attacking outlet.
