Ince, who won two league titles with the Red Devils, says Liverpool must continue winning to be labelled a great side.
Paul Ince has explained why the present Liverpool side are cannot be labelled as one of the great teams yet.
Jurgen Klopp's Reds, who have dropped just five points all year, were on the brink of winning their first league title in 30 years but the Premier League came to a halt amid the coronavirus crisis.
They have an unbelievable 25 point gap over defending champions Manchester City who sit in second spot, but are still short of "greatness" according to former Man Utd and Liverpool holding midfielder Ince - who says the Merseyside club must continue winning before they can be considered a great team.
"It is tough to say that [they are among the best] but I think what Liverpool have done has been a great achievement," Ince told Goal.
"I think the quality of the Premier League hasn’t been what it has been [previously].
"Are they a great team? I wouldn’t say they are; you have to win it season after season. I think they have got the talent and the manager to become a great team.
"Great teams keep winning. If they win it this year and next year, then we can start calling it a great team.
"Like that Man City team, that’s a great team. Liverpool have been good in the last two years but they need to keep winning things before we say it is a great team. You go back to other great teams.
"I say Arsenal Invincibles, those Man United teams and Liverpool teams that kept winning things constantly. European Cups in Liverpool’s case. For United, it was doubles, trebles and league titles.
