Futaa’s Ultimate Premier League preview: Liverpool

Futaa’s Ultimate Premier League preview: Liverpool

Liverpool will be heading to the 2019/2020 English Premier League season with the primary aim of lifting the trophy.

Last season, the Jurgen Klopp side came close but were outsmarted by a never-say-die Manchester City led by trophy-hungry Pep Guardiola.

Liverpool finished last season with massive 97 points, one shy of eventual champions Man City.


With the current transfer window few hours to close, Liverpool are not really active as they have only made two confirmed signings. One is Adrian who is the replacement for second choice goalkeeper Simon Mignolet.

And the other is centre-back Sepp van den Berg who joined from PEC Zwolle.

The Reds are not looking at adding more strength to their ranks despite the huge number of departures from Anfield.


Meanwhile, the European champions have offloaded seven players in the summer of 2019.

Adam Bogdan, Rafael Camacho, Kamil Grabara, Mignolet, Alberto Moreno, Connor Randall, and Daniel Sturridge have all left Anfield.

While others may not be active, Moreno and Sturridge played active roles in their final seasons at Liverpool.

Competitive season

With Naby Keita, Xherdan Shaqiri, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Adam Lallana all fit and ready to roll, it only promises to be an exciting season for Liverpool.

The competition this season is anticipated to be a tough one as clubs like Arsenal and Everton have all fortified their squad and ready to compete against big names like Liverpool and Man City.

The EPL defending champions still boast of a squad that can do the damage any day against any team and Pep is not satisfied with trophy yet.

But Liverpool is still a fierce side with the offensive trio of Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino still as dangerous as ever.

Predicted starting XI

Alisson, Alexander-Arnold, Gomez, Van Dijk, Robertson, Fabinho, Henderson, Wijnaldum, Mane, Salah, Firmino.

Subs: Adrian, Lovren, Keita, Oxlade-Chamberlain, Lallana, Shaqiri, Matip, Origi


It is almost certain Liverpool will make the top four if they play as better as they did last season.

Their major target will be to win the EPL title which is very possible if Man City and other big teams falter along the way.

Retaining the UEFA Champions League trophy is a tall order and the Reds will need to fight for every trophy up for grabs.
