Liverpool diving straight into deep end in August

Liverpool diving straight into deep end in August

Transfer windows are becoming a bit of an issue for Liverpool; instead of actually paying up hefty fees for quality targets, the phrase "like a new signing" is getting batted around like a corky as Jurgen Klopp continues to work from within.

"And Liverpool are probably one of the cheapest, compared to the London clubs".

"I try not to pay too much respect to the players I am playing against", the Liverpool academy graduate said.

Manager Jurgen Klopp and his troops will have to keep their focus in order to make a successful start, with the UEFA Champions League qualifier against TSG Hoffenheim looming.

Sadio Mane should take his place in the front three after recovering from a knee injury that he sustained towards the end of last season while Roberto Firmino will lead the line up front.

Sure, many will remember the 2013/14 season when Liverpool came very close to winning it, and it was arguably a mistake from their Skipper Steven Gerrard that cost them the League.

He added: "I don't think he [Klopp] has made enough signings to challenge in the big two competitions next season".

Scotland worldwide Andy Robertson, acquired from Hull for 8 million pounds, may be the answer to Liverpool's problems at left-back, while young striker Dominic Solanke arrives from Chelsea with glowing reports of his potential. The better bet is both teams to score.

The Merseyside outfit completed their pre-season matches by beating Athletic Bilbao 3-1 in Dublin last Saturday, and Klopp is confident that his side are ready to begin the season on a high.

Dortmund's interest was rumoured repeatedly in Spain when Klopp was manager of the German club, with it being believed Inaki would be the ideal match for the manager's system.

This season won't be Salah's first taste of Premier League football though having spent time at Chelsea.

It's not to say this season will follow the same trend as the last, but after holding no qualms over facing opposition from the top six, it's this experience against the "lower" sides that must set the Reds up for the 2017/18 season.

Chelsea, Liverpool, staying at Arsenal - what would be best for Oxlade-Chamberlain?
