Liverpool had a memorable season in 2018-19. Despite failing to win their maiden Premier League title after losing to rivals Manchester City in the titular clash, they made a remarkable come back to emerge as champions of Europe for the sixth time. It was a massive win not only for the Liverpool side but also for their manager Jurgen Klopp.
Notably, Klopp had lost six successive finals, including three with his present club Liverpool alone.
This was Liverpool’s first major trophy in seven years and with Klopp having set high standards for himself, fans and commentators would want Liverpool to come out as the winner yet again.
However, the following three major problems face Klopp and his men ahead of the 2019-20 season.
Before Klopp joined Liverpool, they were lacking depth in their squad which they seemed to have retained in the present squad.
However, injuries to star players like Virgil Van Dijk and Allison could ring warning bells for Jurgen Klopp.
Injury to these players could mean a big setback for his side as it is their brilliance on the field which makes Liverpool a team to watch out for.
It would be worth noting which areas the Reds would try and strengthen in the transfer season this summer.
A lot of hype was created around Jurgen Klopp’s team when they were leading the Premier League during Christmas last year. Fans and critics, everyone had thought that this could well be Liverpool’s season.
But then came the twist and Liverpool became the only side to have failed to win the Premier League after leading Premier League during the Christmas season.
Perhaps the Reds failed to deliver under pressure and after an overall good season the pressure would only rise as everyone will expect them to go one step further and lift the trophy.
Liverpool were absolutely fantastic last season with them accumulating 97 points in the Premier League. However, Manchester City bettered their record with 98 points.
In fact, Liverpool lost only once in the entire season and it was a superb clash for the top spot between Liverpool and Manchester City.
However, the Reds should try and focus on their game and not think too much about their well fought out last season.
On the contrary, thinking too much of their past achievements or for that matter, their lost chances may be detrimental for the side.
