Liverpool Football Club appear to be in store for a fruitful season, with Klopp’s methods all coming to the fore in what could be a massive breakthrough campaign for the club.
The likable German has the fans on his side, the board and the players, which is the distinct opposite when looking at a club like Arsenal, a side who are expected to be there or thereabouts with Liverpool when it comes to challenging in England’s top flight. Even Liverpool themselves have had to battle with fan anger and board upheaval in recent years, but things seem to be running a lot more smoothly these days under Jurgen Klopp.
Most professional sports betting sites predict Liverpool could improve once again this campaign and build on last season’s success.
The circus surrounding Coutinho’s move to Barcelona, which of course didn’t materialise in the end, can’t have been helpful but even the prospect of his departure, someone considered a key man, might not have hit Liverpool as hard as previous seasons. Salah has already shown he can fill the void, and Mane is more than capable of having a better career at Liverpool than Coutinho has. Chuck Firmino and new boy Oxlade-Chamberlain into the mix and things really are looking up for Liverpool. Bluntly put, they are no longer so reliant on Coutinho and, on paper anyway, look far stronger this campaign, and for the future.
Naby Keita, who’s joining next summer from Leipzig, said he was excited to be joining the Reds and he agrees the future is bright. He said: “I am delighted that an agreement has been reached which will allow me to join Liverpool Football Club next summer, when I will become part of a project that excites me greatly.”
A quick glance at their Premier League rivals will tell you the Merseyside giants could mount a strong challenge this season alone. Chelsea have started fairly slowly and have new players to bed in, Arsenal aren’t a happy club at this moment in time, both Manchester clubs have a huge amount of pressure on them after spending massive sums this summer, and Spurs’ stuttering Wembley form could rule them out of a top four finish.
There are questions marks over their defence and a lack of a natural front man at Liverpool, but overall Klopp’s building a more solid, rounded team, which is capable of really stamping their authority this season and beyond. For the first time in years, everyone’s pulling in the same direction at Anfield and the future is looking bright.
