Liverpool last lifted a domestic league title in England’s top-flight back in 1990, with the club enduring a frustrating wait to finally get their hands on the coveted Premier League trophy ever since.
The Anfield outfit have come very close on numerous occasions to finally ending that wait in past campaigns but only to come up short at the final hurdle.
But there is a new sense of hope and even expectations from fans and ex-players involved with the club since Jurgen Klopp’s arrival, with the German coach having instilled a strong belief into his squad, as well as a dynamic attacking approach each and every weekend.
The Reds reached last season’s Champions League final unexpectedly after an incredible run of form throughout an exciting European campaign, with Klopp guiding his star-studded squad to within touching distance of a famous victory.
However, the Merseyside club were ultimately beaten by Real Madrid, who incredibly secured their third consecutive triumph in Europe’s elite club competition under former French coach Zinedine Zidane, who has since been replaced at the helm by Spanish tactician Julen Lopetegui.
The Reds have strengthened their side since that sickening defeat in the final, as Cristiano Ronaldo and co rallied to a historic success, but Liverpool are now back on track and are seeking a monumental triumph in the Premier League.
Fans have long been craving a top-tier victory, with their supporters having had to endure bitter rivals Manchester United previously dominating and Manchester City recently rising to prominence outright in England.
But Klopp now has the side capable of dethroning Pep Guardiola’s Man City this current campaign and one that could potentially go on to secure a famous win. Liverpool are currently seen as promising 9/4 second-favourites with bet365 in the latest football betting to go all the way and claim what would be a historic Premier League title triumph next May.
Within Klopp’s set-up are a host of attacking stars, solid midfield personnel and crucial defensive units. Mohamed Salah set pulses racing last season with his remarkable form, rallying to a PFA Player of the Year victory after also firing himself to the Premier League Golden Boot ahead of usual suspect Harry Kane of Spurs.
He hasn’t been just as effective this current term but it was always going to be a big ask to live up to the high expectations he set last season. But, he is still an important factor, as he features alongside African superstar Sadio Mane and Brazil ace Roberto Firmino, who are continuing their impressive form from last campaign.
Meanwhile, the likes of Jordan Henderson, Naby Keita, Fabinho and James Milner have been crucial components within Klopp’s current crop of stars in midfield and in the wide areas.
At the back, new goalkeeper Allison Becker has been a positive step up from Loris Karius, after his previous blunders, while Joe Gomez, Virgil van Dijk and Andy Robertson have shone in defence too. The future looks bright for Liverpool under Klopp but it’s time to finally fulfil potential and a Premier League title triumph would see the Reds return to the pinnacle, where they previously sat so proudly.
