Liverpool are embarking on their first full season under manager Jurgen Klopp, and they’ve made an excellent start to it.
Former Borussia Dortmund boss Klopp took over from the sacked Brendan Rodgers in October last year and, although he led the Reds to two Cup finals, both of which they lost, they could only muster an eighth-place finish in the Premier League.
Nevertheless, hopes were high that Klopp could bring the good times back to Anfield, and many are expecting the Reds to challenge for the title this season, and at a bare minimum finish in the top four.
And they’ve gone about those challenges in an excellent manner so far.
Liverpool are third in the Premier League, level on points with leaders Manchester City, having won seven of their opening ten league games. Only Burnley have beaten the Reds so far this season, while victories over Chelsea, Arsenal, and Leicester have demonstrated Liverpool’s capabilities against the top sides.
They’ve also reached the last eight of the League Cup, courtesy of a 2-1 win over Tottenham last week, and will certainly fancy their chances of reaching the last four when they host Leeds at Anfield at the end of November.
