Liverpool legend Graeme Souness can see the defending Premier League champions not being challenged this season.
Souness was reacting to Leicester City's 5-2 win at Manchester City yesterday.
He told Sky Sports: "Liverpool won by 18 points (last season). Liverpool in my opinion have strengthened big time.
"I look at City now whether Ruben Dias comes in, it'll have to be more than Dias to take City from 18 points behind Liverpool to getting in front of them.
"Liverpool are stronger today than they were 12 months ago. That's a marker, when you look at what City have shown.
"After all the teams we've seen that can challenge, it's Leicester after today but we're three games in.
"Some players need five or six (games) to get up to speed. But right now, I think Liverpool could run away with it."
