Frank Lampard predicts where Liverpool will finish this season

Steven Gerrard shaking his head at Glenn Hoddle

BT SPORT Liverpool legend Steven Gerrard was not happy at Glenn Hoddle's Everton prediction

The first-half of last season saw the Reds attempt to do as much as they were arguably in title winning form - securing 42 points from 54, and scoring four or more goals in six of the first 18 games - as they showcased an nearly flawless fluid counter-pressing style.

When it comes to news surrounding playmaker Philippe Coutinho, Klopp has dismissed claims that the Brazilian will make the move to Barcelona.

Star Bet: You have to feel that Liverpool missed a golden opportunity to go much better than fourth previous year.

"With a year under his belt and having developed an understanding of what is required to compete in the Premier League, I think this will be Pep Guardiola's season".

Simon Mignolet is likely to continue his dominance over Loris Karius in the goalkeeping position for the Premier League opener after the Belgian show drastic improvement to his form at the back end of last season. The last time they won the League was during the 1989/90 season and since then things haven't gone their way in the League.

Per Pearce, the Liverpool boss also ruled out resting players ahead of the Champions League qualifier. Warnock was far from impressed, stating that he "will never forgive Benitez".

"He makes those diagonal runs that are so important to our play at Liverpool".

Blount missed three days of training camp because of a personal issue. "Of course I want to play", Blount said Tuesday. The running backs and receivers should both be intriguing to watch this preseason.

"Roberto is a clever player", says Coutinho. Guiding Liverpool back to the Champions League was the main target last season, although repeating the trick this time around will be a bigger test of his managerial skills when faced with a rejuvenated Manchester United and Arsenal and a hectic European schedule.

Klopp's men hammered Watford 6-1 at Anfield last season but needed an Emre Can wonder goal to secure the points at Vicarage Road.

The news is slightly better for Sturridge and Coutinho.

Watford were utterly awful that night but the result was far closer than it ought to have been.

"It was Michael Owen, back in the day, and then ever since that I've followed them".

The home side will be much changed from that night, with a different manager and a new centre-forward who have both inflicted misery on Liverpool with their former clubs.

City are favourites to win the league at 13/8 with Sky Bet.
