Jurgen Klopp needs time to turn Liverpool into genuine title contenders, says Swansea manager Garry Monk.
Liverpool manager Klopp has raised expectations during his short time on Merseyside with only one defeat in nine games and impressive Barclays Premier League wins at Chelsea and Manchester City.
"They will need time to get to the point of being title contenders - whether it be this season or in coming seasons," Monk said ahead of Swansea's league visit to Liverpool on Sunday.
"Whenever Liverpool appoint a manager, the expectation is for them to be title challengers.
"That is the way the club perceives itself. Whether that is this season or next season, that remains to be seen.
"Liverpool have not been genuine title contenders for a while, but the expectation will always be there because of the type of club it is."
