Liverpool legend makes bold Premier League top 4 prediction

Liverpool legend makes bold Premier League top 4 prediction”

Pep Guardiola will not use a shortage of first team players in preseason as an excuse when Manchester City kick off their season in less than two weeks' time.

Reds manager Jurgen Klopp has already signed Fabinho, Xherdan Shaqiri, Naby Keita and most recently Alisson Becker, who joined for a record fee for a goalkeeper. Milner fully expects the forward to demonstrate he is one of the finest players in the world next season but says the onus is on the Liverpool team to improve in tandem.

Klopp also reiterated that he could not guarantee a trophy for Liverpool in the upcoming campaign.

Both ended in fourth placed finishes but the underlying fact that Liverpool could've done far better in those two seasons counts as the most disappointing element of the German's stint thus far. "He didn't make a good preseason, he wasn't good in the first games of preseason".

New footage, per Liverpool's latest "Inside Pre-Season" video, shows the 26-year-old win possession in City's box, play the ball out wide and then create space to be found for a header.

Sarri's Napoli side were unfortunate to miss out on the Scudetto last season, finishing on an impressive 91 points.

Pundits across the world have started making their predictions for the season and majority have a different view.

Just what Liverpool fans wanted to hear.

Milner ignored the inevitable transfer speculation that surrounded Salah towards the end of last season as he blazed a goal trail through the Premier League and Europe.

This year, the City boss needs him to be at his very best from the opening games of the season - the Community Shield clash with Chelsea on August 5 followed by the Premier League opener at Arsenal seven days later. The rest of their first 15 games feature eight away fixtures, three of which are against their top six rivals and five of which, though tough, are very winnable. If they believe it's the best for them, it's flawless for them. "But the more important thing is what I'm trying to do for the team and especially helping the team as much as I can to win games". Their ability to record consistent results, regardless of the opponent will be crucial to their chances of success next year.
