Loris Karius has stated he does not see Manchester United in the running for the Premier League title.
The Liverpool goalkeeper believes Arsenal, Chelsea, Manchester City and Liverpool have a shot at the coveted title.
All four teams the German goalie named currently occupy the champions league spot, with Arsenal in fourth and just three points away from table-topping Chelsea.
“Chelsea, Manchester City, Arsenal and us,” he told Kicker when pressed for his pick of the Premier League crop.
“That quartet is standing eye-to-eye.
“Many thought City with Pep Guardiola would be the favourites, but Chelsea went on a brutal run recently.
“The direct duels could be decisive.”
Liverpool sit second at present, but Karius insists no-one at Anfield is getting swept up in the wave of optimism that is building behind Jurgen Klopp’s troops.
He added: “It’s a dream that is still far away.
“We’ve not made that [winning the league] our goal because if you do and finish second you’d think the season was a disappointment.
“Our goal is to play in the Champions League next term.”
