Liverpool may have missed out on Premier League and Champions League final success, but Jurgen Klopp’s team had an outstanding 2021/22 season.
They played every game possible during the season and demonstrated amazing fight, stamina, and courage despite the fact that the matches kept coming.
However, the Reds understand that strengthening and improving their squad is the only way to keep up with Manchester City. Fresh blood can be a game changer, not just on the football field but also for online casinos. Many players prefer trying new casinos instead of the more established ones since they have more to prove and try harder.
Therefore, some changes have been made ahead of the 2022/2023 season, and with less than two weeks before the PL kicks off, we take a closer look at what might be the starting 11’s.
Liverpool’s goalkeeping options are quite strong, with Alisson Becker, perhaps the best goal-stopper in the world, being the first choice, ably complemented by Caoimhin Kelleher during Cup matches.
Adrian is another veteran goalkeeper on the Reds’ roster, while Loris Karius has been released. It’s not a position in which Liverpool desperately needs to improve, but an additional pair of hands wouldn’t hurt.
Liverpool’s defence is another strong point, with options on the right, the centre, and the left.
Trent Alexander-Arnold is one of the world’s best right-backs, and he’s now adequately supported by Joe Gomez, the Reds’ fourth-choice centre-back. Neco Williams left for Nottingham Forest on a permanent basis, but Calvin Ramsay has already replaced the Welshman.
Ibrahima Konate has a good chance of unseating Joel Matip in the centre of defence, despite the latter enjoying a fantastic season in 2021/22. Konate is likely to be placed opposite Virgil van Dijk. Andy Robertson will be on the left, with Konstantinos Tsimikas as a capable deputy.
Liverpool has a plethora of players in central midfield, but it’s clear that younger additions are required.
Aurelien Tchouameni, a Monaco midfielder and long-term Liverpool target has signed for Real Madrid. When fit, Fabinho is a lock, and Thiago exudes class from his feet.
Jordan Henderson isn’t a sure starter anymore, but he’s a solid player alongside Naby Keita, James Milner, Curtis Jones, and Harvey Elliott. There’s no place at the inn for Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain.
What a summer it’s been for Liverpool’s attacking players. Not only has Sadio Mane left Liverpool for Bayern Munich, but Mohamed Salah’s future has also been sorted with a new long-term contract.
In terms of potential replacements for new signing Darwin Nunez, Ajax winger Antony is a fantastic talent who Klopp admires, while Jarrod Bowen is a long-term objective.
With Nunez joining Luis Diaz, Diogo Jota, and Roberto Firmino, Liverpool still has a plethora of attacking options despite Mane’s departure. However, there will be no more Divock Origi or Takumi Minamino.
