Premier League: What to expect from Liverpool in 2019-20?Last updated on Jul 22, 2019, 03:28 pm
Liverpool put in a commendable shift in 2018-19 Premier League season and took the title fight to the final game-week but they lost by a solitary point to champions Manchester City.
This term, the UEFA Champions League winners will be wanting to break the domestic jinx.
Perhaps, the UCL trophy would inspire the Reds.
Here we decode what to expect from Liverpool in 2019-20.
Like City, Liverpool are miles ahead of others
Like Man City, the Reds are at a different level, compared to the rest of the chasing pack.
There is a huge gap and a repeat of the last season could be on the cards.
So the mega title fight could end up between City and Liverpool.
Jurgen Klopp's side will be looking to keep City on their toes and be solid themselves.
Liverpool's all-round depth a classy attribute
Liverpool's major strength is their all-round side.
They have depth and class all around the pitch.
The mid-field looks sorted and can dominate games.
The defensive structure will be led by world class Virgil van Dijk.
The impact of both their full backs will be immense in getting those perfect crosses in.
One expects to see a natural attacking show coupled with high intensity.
Liverpool's front three can cause havoc
Liverpool scored a stunning 89 goals in Premier League last season.
Their front three comprising of Sadio Mane, Mohamed Salah and Roberto Firmino amassed 56 goals between them.
And, the onus of sticking true to attacking and high pressing football could see these three dominate the charts in the new season as well.
They could cause several issues for opposition teams.
Mid-field options for the Reds, and what about Brewster?
Liverpool's mid-field is loaded with options.
And, in this long season, Klopp would look to change personnel and rotate the team.
Divock Origi is an option but there is a lack of depth in this department.
Liverpool could be tempted to use teenager Rhian Brewster.
Just like United, City and Chelsea, this is a moment for an academy star to break through the ranks.
Liverpool are well set under Klopp
Liverpool need the same intensity which they have shown in the last two seasons. The players are well set and Klopp has a fantastic team under him. The manner in which they have played suggests that it will take something extraordinary to stop Liverpool's march.
