Liverpool's season: What can we expect from the Reds?

The Reds have enjoyed a fantastic start to their Premier League campaign, having gone undefeated thus far in the league. Jurgen Klopp's new acquisitions have impressed with the cream of the crop being Dominik Szoboszlai.

The Hungarian has recently been given the Liverpool Player of the Month for August and has been a star in the new-look Liverpool midfield. Alongside new recruits: Ryan Gravenberch, Alexis Mac Allister, and Waturo Endo. This new look midfield has given the Reds a new lease of life as their unbeaten run extends to 16 games from last season into the new one.

Liverpool's unbeaten run is currently the longest of any team in the league. Jurgen Klopp will be looking to extend that further in their upcoming fixtures against West Ham and Tottenham Hotspur.

These are the types of fixtures that will define the season and really solidify what fans can expect from Jurgen Klopp's team. With Tottenham and West Ham being in scintillating form, Liverpool will need to be at their best to get six points from these two games.

Virgil Van Dijik is also back from suspension since his dismissal in the Newcastle game in late August. The Dutchman will be needed in the upcoming fixtures and the rest of the season as he looks to get back to his imperious best.

Liverpool will be looking to be competitive in all competitions with Jurgen Klopp admitting the importance of the Europa League this season. " We want to go as far as possible. I would love to go to the final, obviously, but I have no clue if you can reach that because there will be a lot of fantastic football teams in between us and that target."

Despite the Red's targeting European success, the real target will be to qualify for the Champions League this season via the Premier League. However, if they do win the Europa League they will automatically qualify for the Champions League. Jurgen Klopp has described his new-look team as " Liverpool 2.0" and it will be some feat to replicate the success of his former teams that brought so much success to the club.

Liverpool have a big job on their hands if they're to recreate previous success, however, the comradery in the team is higher than ever. If we have learned anything from Jurgen Klopp's teams, it's that team spirit is key to success and this current side has that in abundance.

Jurgen Klopp and his side know the expectations of the fans and will have to adhere to them in the coming season if they're to be successful. The German's rebuild in the summer will be the catalyst this season and will decide their success.

The summer has proven to be successful as their incomings have settled in excellently with Alexis Mac Allister even being described as " Jurgen Klopp's son" by some of his teammates. The Argentinian has been deployed as a "six" in Klopp's system as they failed to acquire Moises Caicedo in the summer transfer window

Despite the adversity from some fans, Mac Allister has been brilliant for the Reds thus far and keeps things ticking with 88% pass accuracy and a 66% tackle success rate. Many thought the Argentinian was brought in for creativity, however, he is just as impressive playing out of position for Jurgen Klopp.

Thus far it is looking very exciting for Liverpool fans and Jurgen Klopp's men will be looking to achieve even more silverware and cement his place as Liverpool's best ever manager.
