Predicted XI: West Ham United (H)

So its here, as great as good as our pre season has been, it’s time for the season start, and time for our first attempt of naming Liverpool’s first XI….

Alisson: If you pay 67m for a goalkeeper you have to assume that he’s going to play the majority of games, if not all of them.

Alexander-Arnold: This was less than straight forward, Clyne, due to Arnold’s selection in England’s World Cup squad, has played most of Liverpool’s pre season games, and has quietly impressed. I do however believe that the boss will go with young Trent if he feels our young right back is ready.

Van Dijk: For me I believe that Van Dijk will be one of, if not the first name on each league game team sheet this season.

Klavan: With Lovren only just returning after his World Cup exploits and Gomez and Matip both nursing knocks, I believe Klopp will go with the big Estonian.

Robertson: Like Alisson and Van Dijk, I believe unless Robertson is carrying a knock or is ill, he’ll be one of Klopp’s first name on any team sheet.

Winjaldum: This was a tough one, after Milner’s Gary Butcher moment last weekend and Fabinho suffering from illness this week, I believe the boss won’t want to risk either of them. Gini showed last season he’s more than capable of playing the number 6 role.

Keïta: With his impressive performances in preseason I can’t look past our number 8 as a starter for us.

Shaqiri: Despite only having 2-3 games in pre season, due to his involvement in Switzerland’s World Cup squad, it’s fair to say little Xherdan has impressed and I believe he’ll get the nod in our advanced midfield role.

Salah: After his Champions League nightmare and disappointing World Cup, I’m sure our Mo will be chomping at the bit.

Firmino: Bobby in the two games he has played in preseason, never looked like he’d been away.

Mané: Injury permitting, our front 3 will play the majority of home games and I can’t see past our trio for our Premier League curtain raiser.

Finally the real stuff begins, come on you redmen!
