Robbie Fowler

, former Red however says Liverpool still is the most expected one to win the Premier League and it is necessary to sign a defender sometimes soon. Speaking exclusively to Goal on whether Liverpool should enter the January transfer market, Fowler said:

"I think, ideally, yes - because of injuries.

"I won't say they are struggling because they are right there. They are still progressing. To win the Premier League is always the toughest. Arsene Wenger, Jose Mourinho, managers who have won the Premier League have always said that the next year is always the hardest.

"People always want to beat the champions. Therefore, they work that little bit harder, run that little bit harder.

"Liverpool are in a great space and they are playing unbelievable football. Eventually, the results will be a little bit better. The championship is still Liverpool's to lose. They are the team to catch.

"Manchester City will run them close - but they probably need someone to come in. For a supporter point of you want your team to be the very best. Jurgen and his staff are certainly looking into it."
