|Liverpool season preview: Could this be the year for Jurgen Klopp?
|บอล ส เต็ ป If the Champions League final defeat was deflating, Liverpool's summer business soon put a spring back in supporters' steps and hopes are high that Jurgen Klopp can do what he did at Borussia Dortmund and win the title in his third full season in charge.Naby Keita finally completed his long-awaited transfer and with Fabinho also coming in from Monaco, Liverpool's midfield has been transformed. With Alisson also becoming the most expensive goalkeeper in history, Klopp has been backed to end the wait for silverware.
Strength in depth for rotation
It is not just that the new signings add quality บอล ส เต็ ป but they add depth too. Keita and Fabinho can expect to go straight into the starting line-up but Jordan Henderson, James Milner and Gini Wijnaldum are staying and that means Liverpool can keep things fresh in midfield without the quality levels dropping. That will be just as crucial in the forward line too.Mohamed Salah and Roberto Firmino are unlikely to miss only three games between them again and that will put the onus on others. Daniel Sturridge, Dominic Solanke and Danny Ings managed four goals and two assists in 1279 minutes between them last season but more will be needed. Could Xherdan Shaqiri be a game changer in that respect?
Breaking down deep defences
Klopp's record against big teams is good but he has struggled to break sides down. Seven home draws, including a stalemate with West Brom, was too many last season, while the away defeat to Swansea exposed their recurring problems against deep defences. Does Klopp finally now have the squad to be able to properly address this issue?.Keita, in particular, could have a key role here. He is a player with that bit of creativity in midfield - both บอล ส เต็ ป with his dribbling and passing - that could unlock things for Liverpool when Salah and the rest are denied space to run into. It gives Liverpool another way to win and the hope is that this could be the difference over a 38-game season.
