Liverpool will fight for the title, says Rooney

Wayne Rooney has said that he thinks Liverpool will challenge for the title next season, after being impressed with their signings this summer.

The Reds have bought Stuart Downing, Jordan Henderson and Charlie Adam over the last couple of months, and despite the lack of glamorous foreign names, the England striker reckons that Liverpool will kick on from their sixth place finish last year and fight for the title next time out.

'They have made some really good signings,'said Rooney. 'I am sure they will be fighting harder than they ever have done to be up there. They will think they have a chance of winning the title.

'The main threat is going to be from Chelsea, Liverpool, Arsenal and Manchester City. One of them, plus us, will be fighting for the title.'
