Getting to know YOUR Premier League club before the start of the season - Liverpool

Published on 7 August 2023 at 14:00

They've been accused of things going stale at Anfield in the last season or so, however a complete rebrand is in transition and it could be an exciting season for Liverpool. With their skipper leaving it creates an opening for a new player to wear the armband and it has gone to the Dutch Virgil Van Dijk. This summer the Reds have been like a revolving door with entries and exits but let's see how we think they will fair this season. 


Who's in charge? 

Jurgen Klopp is going into his 8th season at Liverpool and it is safe to say he is now a Liverpool legend adding a Premier League, Champions League, FA Cup, League Cup, Super Cup and Club World Cup to their accolades. Last season wasn't their best however they ended up making somewhat of a redemption arch giving themselves European football next season.

Klopps style of play has developed over the years but after a pre-season assessment this is how we expect him to set up. Klopp tries to play in a transitional style where he doesn't let his opponents settle and become defensively compact. His style is known as 'heavy metal football' which tends to see his side push from the front, crowd the midfield and have a high line. The high line can be seen as dangerous however when you have tactically well drilled players of Liverpool's quality I can't see there being too many issues this campaign.

Liverpool's standout player


Darwin Nunez. I expect the Uruguayan to have a better season than the viral song about him, joking aside I think he will shine this campaign. Last season could be described as an average one for the youngster after only picking up nine Premier League goals, not being the breakout season he will have wanted. With a freshened up midfield Liverpool are sure to get more goals and attacking chances and I can see Nunez being at the forefront of them. Therefore I believe that Darwin Nunez will have a season to remember.


Will it be a successful or unsuccessful season for Liverpool?


This season is going to be a success for the Red's as I expect to see a top two finish. I don't expect them to win the title however I wouldn't be surprised if they entertained Manchester City in a title race, With the new entries, freshened up squad, Klopps tactical ability I can see a successful year at Anfield in the 2023/24 season.
