Darwin Nunez expected to hit the ground running as soon as possible.
The Reds are expected to regenerate their frontline this summer with the arrival of Darwin Nunez from Benfica.
The 23-year-old striker penned a six-year deal with the Merseyside club after scoring a remarkable 34 goals with Benfica last season.
The Reds will definitely feel the absence of Sadio Mane who scored 16 goals over his 34 Premier League appearances last season.
Liverpool missed out on the Premier League title by just one point last season and Klopp will need Nunez firing from the start to outclass Manchester City.
“The only worry for Liverpool is that they’ve lost an unbelievable player in Sadio Mane, who scored big goals for them over the years,” Merson wrote.
“They’ll have to rely on Darwin Nunez to settle as quickly as Luis Diaz did, which is obviously a long-shot because the Colombian took to English football like a duck to water.
“If Jurgen Klopp can get Nunez firing immediately, it’ll be tight once again. But if that doesn’t happen, I think Manchester City should win the Premier League.”
