Liverpool Could Win The Premier League With Potential Starting XI For 18/19 Season
Liverpool are not messing about this season. Jurgen Klopp has already been ruthless in this summer's transfer window, snapping up Fabinho from Monaco for £40 million and the highly rated Naby Keita from RB Lepizig for a club record fee - and it looks like he's not done just yet.
The Premier League side are reportedly on the verge of confirming the signing of Roma goalkeeper Alisson after agreeing a world record fee for a goalkeeper of €75 million, smashing the previous record held by Gianluigi Buffon. Madness.
On top of that, the club triggered Xherdan Shaqiri's £!3 million release clause last week, handing him a five-year deal in arguably the bargain of the window thus far.
Alisson, Van Dijk, Fabinho, Keita Firmino....
We're closing in on the best spine we've had for over a decade.

Seriously though, Klopp is building something special at Anfield this season and you only have to look at their potential starting XI to really grasp the strength in depth Liverpool have at their disposal, this season.
Mohamed Salah will be looking to avoid the infamous second season syndrome after bagging 46 goals in all competitions in 2017/18, while the attacking threat of Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mane must continue their form as the trio embark on what could potentially be a title-winning campaign.
Perhaps the only negative in the following squads are the lack of defensive options.

Of course, the signing of Virgil Van Dijk in January has been key, but there are still questions marks over Dejan Lovren, even if he does reckon he's one of the best defenders in world football.
While full-backs Trent Alexander Arnold and Andy Robertson aren't exactly blessed with experience, if they are challenging for a title.
You can't deny that this talented bunch of players have the potential to dominate Europe in the coming months, but will they come up with the goods under Jurgen Klopp?
I've put together a number of potential starting line-ups for the upcoming 2018/19 season.
The fact that Georginio Wijnaldum, Ragnar Klavan and even Loris Karius, who was considered as a number one last season, don't even feature shows their incredible strength in depth.
Let us know in the comments.
