The Liverpool fans in the Transfer Tavern seem a bit all over the place at the moment. They’re excited about the season ahead but still worried about Philippe Coutinho’s possible departure.
Liverpool kick off their 2017/18 Premier League campaign at Vicarage Road against Marco Silva’s Watford in a match where the Reds fans will be expecting a win.
An opening day win can kick start a successful season and put some real power behind Liverpool’s push for their first ever Premier League title.
Liverpool’s high pressing game means their midfield is crucial to the team’s success, similarly to Antonio Conte and his defence, the battles in the centre of the park can win or lose a game for the Reds.
At times in the past Watford have shown they are a side with one or two tricks up their sleeves so Klopp will have to put his best foot forward to ensure a result on Saturday.
With that being said, here is the midfield that Jurgen Klopp must start for Liverpool to get a positive result on the opening day.
