3 reasons why Liverpool will be title contenders this season

3 reasons why Liverpool will be title contenders this season

Liverpool officially signed Keita from RB Leipzig on July 1 after initially striking a deal last summer. "Klavan, shouldn't be too serious, but if Tuesday is too early, I don't know yet", mused the German manager, hinting at a tactical reshuffle.

While City start as title favourites, Liverpool know they are capable of outgunning Guardiola's side - they beat them 4-3 in the league at Anfield in January before a 3-0 victory in the Champions League quarterfinal, first leg.

Torino provided tougher opposition than Napoli and Manchester United in Liverpool's two previous outings but the range of options available to Klopp was again in evidence as Roberto Firmino, Georginio Wijnaldum and Daniel Sturridge all found a way past Salvatore Sirigu in the Italians' goal.

"Today he looked at home, he looked comfortable and when he was called upon he made the saves he had to make, so long may that continue and that will give him more confidence than he has already got and hopefully that will stand us in good stead for the season ahead".

The Reds captain returned to training on Monday after being granted an extended holiday due to England's World Cup semi-final run.

"There are no doubts about Hendo".

It will be interesting to see how he fits into Klopp's plans for the upcoming season.

"He had to learn kind of a new position for him".

"I am not sure but it is Hendo".

Liverpool will be hoping to take their pre-season form into their Premier League campaign when West Ham come to town this weekend.

He said: "No one, really".

"He can still play as the eight or we could play some games with a double six, Fabinho could play the eight or whatever, that's all possible", Klopp stated as he hinted at a flexible formation for the 2018/19 season.

Yet, Klopp has denied suggestions that the Liverpool skipper would be doomed to a place on the bench indefinitely, emphatically stating the Henderson has proven his quality over the last few years.

"If things were fixed with just one line-up and all the others were only needed when the rest are ill that would be the wrong way and we'd have no chance".
