The Reds have won all the Premier League fixtures so far
Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp issued a statement of intent by bolstering the squad during the summer transfer window, signing 4 new players and reinforcing the particular weak areas. They finished 25 points adrift of champions Manchester City and the manager is keen to to mount a Premier League title charge this season.
He splashed out over £170 million to secure the signings of midfielder Naby Keita from RB Leipzig, versatile Fabinho from Monaco, winger Xherdan Shaqiri from Stoke City and goalkeeper Alisson Becker from Roma.
The Reds have begun the current campaign excellently, winning all the Premier League fixtures so far and are only 1 of the 3 teams to have 100 percent record. They have scored 9 goals and only have conceded 1, sitting on top of the table ahead of Chelsea.
They will face Tottenham after the International break, who have won 3 out of the 4 games and club’s legend Phil Thompson believes Liverpool’s defence is what matters most ahead of Saturday’s crunch clash.
He also claimed that the Anfield Outfit will be a great threat in their pursuit of the premier League title this campaign.
“They have had an absolutely fantastic start to the season,” Thompson said as quoted by Liverpool Echo. “It’s been great – but it’s that expectation of where this Liverpool team is going to go.
“They will be a massive threat this year but the front three haven’t really got going. So why’s it been so good?
“The defence has been excellent, so maybe the front three are thinking: we don’t have to score three or four in the first half, we can actually rely on this back four and this goalkeeper to bail us out sometimes.”
