Jurgen Klopp has Liverpool firing again from the get-go this season, and once the Reds get into their stride in the Premier League, that spells danger for the other teams in the English top-flight.
As with all successful sides, they are built on a solid defensive foundation, however, it’s the prowess of their front three which sets them apart.
In Mo Salah, Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mane, they have a trio that always appear to be completely in simpatico.
Frankly, unless one of the three professed a willingness to leave, there would be no need to scout for a replacement.
Though the Spaniard has just scored the first hat-trick of his professional career, it was against a poor Mallorca side and, for the last couple of seasons, the player has either been injured or well below par.
At 25 years of age, he might be worth a punt, but Klopp and his backroom staff aren’t known for taking punts on players, irrespective of their situation.
