What will Liverpool look like next season?
Overall it was a satisfactory season for Liverpool, who secured a place in next season's Champions League with a top four finish. Fourth spot was ok, and although Jurgen Klopp himself would agree that The Reds could have done better, all in all he'll be happy enough with his first full campaign in charge.
There are a lot of rumours going around regarding what possible steps Jurgen Klopp can take to improve the team’s performance next season. While it’s still way too early to be predicting full starting elevens, there’s a high possibility of the following players either continuing or debuting for the Reds in 2017/18.
The Belgian national goalkeeper will most likely continue to stop shots for Liverpool next year, especially given his high number of clean sheets near the end of the league this season. Besides, he seems to be Jurgen Klopp’s go to gloves-man at the moment. We are not saying that Mignolet is irreplaceable, it’s just that it doesn’t seem to be very likely now.
The left-back from Fulham is not only an excellent defender, he is also showing great potential for creating counterattacking opportunities for his team. It isn’t unlikely that Klopp might look to replace Alberto Moreno with the 17-year old Sessegnon. Whether or not Fulham will be parting with the young defender is something that remains to be seen and recent reports suggest Tottenham have won the race, but time will tell.
Virgil Van Dijk
Virgil Van Dijk is valued at around £60 million+ but the Reds are reportedly not put off by that. That doesn’t really come as a surprise, given the Dutch centre-back’s tremendous recent performance for Southampton. It should be noted that Manchester City and Chelsea are also looking to land Van Dijk, but the star himself has expressed his preference for Anfield, making it almost a distinct possibility that he will be in the playing eleven next season for Liverpool.
Nothing short of an injury will stop the English centre-midfielder from playing for the Reds next season. Not only is he a favourite of the coach, but he is loved by fans as well. It further helps when that love is backed up by some superb performances that essentially makes him an irreplaceable part of the team for the forseeable future.
The speed and agility of Mane make him an instant threat for the opposition and the £35 million which Liverpool paid for the Senegalese footballer will only be realized in its full potential when he returns to take up the right-forward position once again for them. Let’s just hope that injuries don’t hamper his field-time as much as they did last season.
Liverpool's chances next year 2017/18
Do you think that any of the names mentioned here will disappear from Liverpool next year? When it comes to the chances of Liverpool climbing higher up the ladder on the league table, all we can say is that Jurgen Klopp will definitely leave no stone unturned and sharp punters may see some betting value.
So, what are the odds for Liverpool Football Club to win the Premier League next season? Although Liverpool has never won the Premier League, many fans believe they have a chance next year, and, of course, a recurrent thought on Jurgen’s mind is who is going to be a good buy this summer to strengthen his team’s odds to win next year. Having finished this year in 4th position there is no doubt they have the chance to get to the top next season. The bookmakers currently have Liverpool as equal fifth favourites with Arsenal with the official odds of 11/1.
And what about odds to win the UEFA Champions League? Despite not having won the Champions League since 2005, Liverpool remains one of the favourites to show a good performance in the 63rd cup, keeping in mind they are one of the only five teams to retain a full-sized replica of the UEFA trophy; altogether Ajax, Real Madrid, Milan, Bayern Munich and Liverpool hold this honour. This year was the turn of Real Madrid but it doesn’t seem crazy to think about Liverpool winning next time, even if Skybet currently has them at 25/1 (Just for comparison. Barcelona is 5/1).
