Sadio Mane is the main talking point for a lot of writers and critics, with most believing he will be an excellent fit for the team. Liverpool paid a handsome price for Mane, however only time will tell if the 24-year-old is worth the investment.
The opposition players are no slouches this year. With Jose Mourinho moving to Old Trafford, Antonio Conte to Stamford Bridge, and Pep Guardiola to Manchester City, a Champions League finish will not come easy by any stretch of the imagination.
Another player that is maturing beautifully is Emre Can, a German international who has turned into an essential part of the midfield. Big things are expected of him this season.
Roberto Firmino is likely to be a key player this year. Klopp has heaped praise on the young striker following a strong pre-season and a lot is expected of him in his second season.
