Current Team & Transfers
Liverpool FC not only have one of the best attacking 3 in world football with Firmino, Salah and Mane respectively , they have also probably the world’s best defender in Virgil Van Dijk. Add this with new signings, Thiago Alcantara from Bayern Munich and Jota from Wolves the team looks even stronger.
Whilst Jota has one of the best records in European football, Thiago is a superstar at his peak. Jürgen Klopp has managed to convince the elite player to join the team, under the radars of everyone.
With this addition and none of the main players leaving, Liverpool FC really are in a strong position to retain the league.
Every season there are always several teams that will be touted to be in the race for the title. Based on the previous couple of games, the closest challengers to the title will be Chelsea, Manchester City and possibly Leicester City. The other usual suspects haven’t invested in elite footballers and the squad to compete over the 9 month season.
Some of the players Manchester City have purchased are Ferran Torres (Valencia to Manchester City) £21m and Ruben Dias (Benfica to Man City) £62m. With an already world-class team, Pep Guardiola has been able to strengthen in defense within weeks of the season starting. This intention to have the best team and squad means that The Blues mean business this season.
Frank Lampard has gone from managing Derby County to Chelsea FC and is doing a fantastic job. Many pundits and analysts have identified Chelsea as the team to win this season. The intentions of the board to sign top players is evident with Kai Havertz (Bayer Leverkusen to Chelsea) £71m, Ben Chilwell (Leicester to Chelsea) £45m, Hakim Ziyech (Ajax to Chelsea) £36m and Edouard Mendy (Rennes to Chelsea) £22m. All these players are fantastic additions and will be sure to put them in a strong position to compete with Liverpool FC. More news can be found on our Chelsea news section here.
Even though Leicester City just missed out on Champions League football after finishing in 5th position, they did have an extremely good campaign. It can be argued that only a downfall of the team after the rebreak is the reason they missed out. This season they are playing fantastic football with their biggest signing, Timothy Castagne (Atalanta to Leicester) £25m.
With over 35 games left in the season, football fans around the world be will be watching how the race for the title unfolds. With Liverpool FC retain it or will one of the teams mentioned above be too strong for Jürgen Klopps’s men, only time will tell.
