|Club Manager||Jürgen Klopp|
|Premier League Odds to Finish Top 4||1/1|
In the 2015/16 season, Liverpool FC gambled on giving Brendan Rodgers one more chance to redeem himself and get the club back on track. They did this by giving him all the funds that he needed to secure new players, as well as giving him the power to make some important decisions at the club. However, this did not pay off. It was at that point that they decided to bring in one of the most successful and celebrated coach in the world, Jürgen Klopp, who despite being applauded as the best successor, he did not achieve what the club and fans wanted. He, however, did manage to show that the club indeed was making a significant improvement, by reaching the first UEFA Europa League finals before losing to Sevilla.
In the 2016/17 season, however, things are set to look bright with Klopp stamping his mark on the team by bringing in some major players from across the world. These new signings are set to bring peace to the team as well as the promise of more goals. Klopp has brought high expectations at Anfield, and his high-octane approach is expected to bring life back into Liverpool and hopefully they return to their old winning ways.

Significant additions: Loris Karius
Joël Matip was no doubt one of the best defensive players in the Bundesliga who is set to help patch things up at Liverpool’s defence, Sadio Mane is a representation of the biggest outlay, but one player that will have a big impact in Liverpool is Loris Karius. Liverpool’s other signings have strengthened positions that already had depth but Loris strengthened one of Liverpool’s weakest point. Or should we put he was meant to, until he fractured his arm, meaning that he will have to spend his first two months as a Liverpool player on the sidelines.
Other additional signings to Liverpool’s already bolstered lineup include Sadio Mane (Southampton), Joel Matip (Schalke), Ragnar Klavan (Augsburg), Georginio Wijnaldum (Newcastle), and Alex Manninger (Augsburg).
Significant departure: Christian Benteke
After Liverpool lost Luis Suárez to FC Barcelona, there has been no other key player that has left the club until now, when Christian Benteke is leaving the club for Crystal Palace. He was the key player during Brendan Rodgers error and he’s always scored key goals to earn Liverpool points.

State of the club
Some of the Liverpool supporters remain neurotic on the lack of the so-called marquee signing during the transfer season, but for most of the supporters, the mood is tensed, as they are yet to see what Jürgen Klopp can do during his first season fully in charge at Anfield. They hope that without European Football, they are going to see the same performance they did during the 2013/14 season when they almost had the trophy.
