Can Jurgen Klopp bring the glory days back to Anfield?
Liverpool fans will have high expectations coming into the 2016/17 season. It will be Jurgen Klopp’s first full season in charge and after two cup final defeats last season, he will be hoping to go one step further and win his first piece of silverware as Liverpool manager.
Klopp has been highly active in the transfer window spending over £60 million. His two marquee signings so far have been Sadio Mane and Georginio Wijnaldum who came from Southampton and Newcastle respectively. The addition of these two attacking players will give Liverpool arguably, one of the strongest attacking line ups in the league which already includes the likes of Sturridge, Origi, Benteke, Coutinho and Firmino.
Daniel Sturridge will be vital for Liverpool’s campaign if he can stay fit. A proven goal scorer at Anfield with a remarkable 53 goals in 92 games, Sturridge has already shown us that he’s one of the top strikers in the Premier League. If you fancy his chances of being the Premier League top goalscorer, you can get 25/1.
Klopp will be keen to have a fully fit squad throughout the season so he can build some consistency in their form, something which they lacked last season. One of his main objectives will be to get the Liverpool back into the Champions League, you can currently get odds of 11/8 that Liverpool will scure a top 4 finish, something which should be achievable with the strength in depth available to them.
If you fancy Liverpool to avenge their two Cup final defeats last season, you might like the 10/1 on offer for them to lift the FA Cup. The last time they did this was their famous comeback victory against West Ham in 2006, a game which they won on penalties after being 2-0 down after 28 minutes.
