It's been a good week for Liverpool. In the past seven days Jurgen Klopp's men have beaten Tottenham Hotspur and West Ham on the road, both games finishing 3-1. Now as the transfer window closes it appears that they've strengthened their backline with the potential signings of Ozan Kabak and Ben Davies from Schalke and Preston respectively.
Liverpool signing Ozan Kabak and Ben Davies
Injuries to Virgil van Dijk and more recently Joel Matip, had left the Reds struggling with injuries. They had been playing midfielders Fabinho and Jordan Henderson in their backline, or youth players, but now they have more steady talent to take those spots.
Bettors have noticed this signings and today we've seen 34.73% of all bets being on Liverpool to win the Premier League. Liverpool are now second favorites at +430, having nearly halved in price, having been +850 just 9 days ago.
Ozan Kabak is set to sign from Schalke on a loan, and he'll be looking forward to changes for the title. Schalke had been struggling in the Bundesliga this season and look almost set to be relegated to Bundesliga 2.
Ben Davies arrives at Anfield having had 6 months on his contract at Preston North End. He had be set to sign for Celtic but when the move to Liverpool became a possibility he had to take it. A number of experts are surprised by the singing of Davies, who many believe not good enough for the Champions, but if he delivers strength in depth, for the title push, then it could be money well spent.
Manchester United's struggles in the league, picking up just one point from a possible six has seen them slump to third favorites for the league. They've moved from +700 to as long as +2100 and it now seems that Liverpool are indeed Manchester City's main rivals this season.
