Despite our slip up at the weekend, we're still second favourites to win the League

Most pundits will be suggesting the 2017/18 Premier League title may be heading straight back to the Bridge (even after Saturday), but new a study has revealed it could be Liverpool who are best equipped to win the title.

Can You Win Anything With Kids? has analysed the most common starting eleven of every title winner in the Premier League’s history to uncover just what is the perfect age to lift the trophy.

Since its inception in 1992/93, statistics suggest the perfect age to win the league is 26.62 and with the new season approaching, Liverpool look strongest with an average age of 26.73.

At the back the Reds have almost the perfect line-up, with a goalkeeper of 29 (average winning GK: 29.63), and a back four aged 27.5, just 0.49 years older than the average. Additionally, the midfield has only a little bit more experience (26) than the average age of 25.38 and Sadio Mane has just over a year before he hits the peak striker age of 26.94.

Chelsea, who won the league with an average age of 27.36 last season, is the second most likely to win the league among the top six clubs with an average age of 26.45.

Trends suggest once a team hits an average age of around 29, to win the title again needs an influx of fresh blood. Arsenal’s title win back in 2002, Manchester United’s in 2013 and Chelsea’s in 2015 all saw refreshed squads from their winning campaigns a few years previous.

The introduction of Antonio Rudiger, Tiemoue Bakayoko and Alvaro Morata into the team has already significantly dropped the average age of the Blues compared to last season, while Pep Guardiola’s summer spending has seen them go from being the oldest top six team to the second youngest (25.55), with only rivals Manchester United having a younger team (25.45).
