Best possible XI:
Key arrivals: Sepp van den Berg (PEC Zwolle), Harvey Elliott (Fulham), Adrian (West Ham)
Key departures: Daniel Sturridge (released), Alberto Moreno (Villarreal).
Ranking their offseason: This is a risky one, isn’t it? So far, the Reds have only added pieces for the future. Their attacking trident of Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane, and Roberto Firmino have had consecutive busy summers to go with long Premier League and Champions League campaigns. The Reds are fortunate to have a deep youth system and some key players returning to health, but there’s not a lot to love here. 3/10.
Star player: Virgil van Dijk — The towering Dutchman may well be a Ballon d’Or winner by the end of the calendar year.
Coaches’ Corner: Jurgen Klopp — His gift of keeping his players happy may be tested a bit more this season, as Liverpool will need to get more time and production out of key young players.
PST predicts: A righteous fight for their first league title of the Premier League era. Will they again come up just short, adding no one big before the window slams shut while Man City addressed its only weakness?
