Liverpool fans on Twitter have laying down their expectations for 2018/19

You can understand why a lot of Liverpool fans are being optimistic ahead of the new season. The club have signed four new players and look better placed than anyone to challenge Manchester City this season. However, the debate rolls on as some fans have claimed that they need to start winning trophies for Jurgen Klopp to truly be viewed as a successful gaffer.

The last trophy that Liverpool won was the League Cup in the 2011/12 season and for a lot of fans, that simply isn’t good enough. Since Jurgen Klopp took over at Anfield in early October 2015 Liverpool have got to three major finals and lost all of them. Whilst getting to the final in itself is impressive, the club won’t truly be viewed as one of the European powerhouses again until they can start to win in the big games.

Last season, whilst most deemed Liverpool to be successful, they failed to win a trophy. The club scraped a spot in the top four, taking it to the last day before confirming Champions League football, before losing in the Champions League final against Real Madrid. Meanwhile, Chelsea, who had a shocking season by most accounts last time out, ended their campaign with the FA Cup to their name. Liverpool won less silverware than Chelsea but most would agree that the Reds had a better season, leading to this debate about whether or not Klopp needs to win silverware.

As you can see, the fans are all desperate to get some silverware back at Anfield this summer and will be desperate for it to be the Premier League or the Champions League, although the FA Cup would still be nice.
