After the thrills, spills, glory and ultimately heartache of last season, Liverpool are ready to do it all again this time around.
Triumphant in both the Carabao and FA Cups, yet ultimately coming up just short in the Premier League and Champions League, Jurgen Klopp’s side will surely expect to be there or thereabouts again come May.
There may have been changes at Anfield, with the likes of Sadio Mane, Takumi Minamino and Divock Origi leaving from last year’s squad, but the arrival of a new £64 million ($76m) striker in Darwin Nunez, plus the summer renewal of Mohamed Salah’s contract, provides plenty of cause for optimism among Reds fans.
Pre-season has been mixed, with defeats to Manchester United, Salzburg and Strasbourg offset by wins over Leipzig and Crystal Palace, and a rousing Community Shield triumph against Manchester City.
Whatever happens, this season promises to be every bit as exciting as the last one.
