Match Preview : Any team would go with a defensive tactics against a side like Liverpool, who are in top, top form. But Sean Dyche is renowned as a brave man and loves to present exciting football with his options. Tom Heaton might have a tough day at the office against the likes of Salah, Mane and Bobby. Tarkowski and Mee would like to test the Reds’ forwards. The possible starters at the midfields are Jeff Henrick, Jack Cork and Ashley westwood. The possibly featuring forwards would be Barnes and Wood.
Klopp has brought the sixth UCL to the Marseyside but the All Reds are yet to win the EPL title. Last season they finished second and they are again one of the hot favourites to win it butcan they do it? To ensure that, they need to get a good start. Alisson has been in top form and is statistically the best in the league right now since the start of the last season. The back four might be Van Djik, Alexander-Arnold, Matip and Robertson. The midfield trio would be Fabinho, Wijnaldum and Henderson with Salah, Mane and Firmino in the front.
I expect a typical Liverpool victory with Alisson keeping another clean sheet.
