Brazilian legend Pele has backed Liverpool to end their arduous wait to win the Premier League title this season.

Liverpool have not won the title since the creation of the Premier League in 1992, and their last triumph came in 1990.

Pelé is especially anxious to see some of the Brazilian stars of Liverpool, including goalkeeper Alisson, who joined from Rome for £ 65 million and attacker Roberto Firmino.

Pelé wrote on Twitter: "Today is the beginning of @PremierLeague, who do you think will win? I think it's the year of Liverpool, Alisson and Firmino! & # 39;

A little surprising, Pele did not mention another Brazilian in Liverpool books in midfielder Fabinho, who joined Monaco for £ 44 million and could prove to be a very important player for Jurgen Klopp's team.

Since Liverpool has been very active in the transfer market, they have also brought Naby Keita and Xherdan Shaqiri, many are encouraging them to enjoy a successful season.

FIRST FIVE PREMIER LEAGUE FIXTURES DE LIVERPOOL

August 12: West Ham (home)

20th of August: Crystal Palace (outside)

August 25th: Brighton (house)

September 1: Leicester (far)

September 15: Tottenham (far)

However, they will have to be at their best to finish above Manchester City, who won the title in such a brilliant style last season.

Manchester United may not have achieved as many signings as they wanted, but will continue to seek the title, while Chelsea and Arsenal hope to revitalize under the guidance of new managers Maurizio Sarri and Unai Emery, respectively.

Tottenham, meanwhile, did not add to his squad this summer, but he still has a very strong starting lineup.

Despite the fierce competition they face, Liverpool will be determined to be crowned champions in this campaign. They have their season underway on Sunday with a home game against West Ham.
