Liverpool have been cut to 9/2 (5.50) to win the Premier League after signing Alisson on a six-year deal from Roma for a record £66.8 million.

The Brazil goalkeeper completed the high-profile move having travelling to England and will replace Loris Karius as the Reds’ number one after becoming the most expensive goalkeeper in the world, ousting Gianluigi Buffon.

Jurgen Klopp’s outfit finished fourth last year and were 5/1 (6.0) to claim the title on Wednesday morning, but the signing of Alisson has seen their odds cut as they take their summer spend to over £150m

The 9/2 (5.50) quote from dabblebet sees Liverpool some way behind favourites 4/6 (1.67) Manchester City, but they are still second-favourites with Manchester United at 6/1 (7.0) and Chelsea at 12/1 (13.0).

Liverpool open their season with a home fixture against West Ham and are just 3/10 (1.30) to claim three points, with their London opponents out at 17/2 (9.50) after losing this clash 4-1 twice last term.

Of course, the Reds reached the Champions League final last season before losing 3-1 to Real Madrid as Karius made two mistakes that led directly to goals, although the German stopper was later diagnosed with concussion.

dabblebet do not feel confident in the Reds to make a similar run this time, though, and price them at 12/1 (13.0) to win the famous trophy for the sixth time.

It has been six years since Liverpool last won any silverware and this will become seven as no more trophies can be won by them between now and 2019.

FA Cup glory can be backed at 7/1 (8.0), making them third-favourites behind the two Manchester clubs with City at 9/2 (5.50) and United 6/1 (7.0), whilst Chelsea are also 7/1 (8.0).
