Here’s how we rank their chances of tournament success…
Of all the English sides in this years competition, Liverpool appear to be the least likely to lift the giant trophy in May, having not competed in the tournament since 2009. However, that doesn’t mean they don’t have a good chance. Brendan Rodgers has got his side playing with a pace and style that will threaten the best defences in Europe while in Raheem Sterling, they have a real gem of an attacker whose skill and direct style of play will be very useful against European teams.
Liverpool’s chances of winning the competition, like their chances of winning the Premier League, may hinge on which Mario Balotelli turns up at Anfield. Will it be the confident maverick who can score impossibly good goals? Or will it be the moody striker who looked completely disinterested during his final days at Manchester City. With so many factors needing to go for them if they are to win the Champions League, Rodgers and his men will probably consider a place in the quarter finals as a good campaign this year.
