New Beginning: Stars from both the Mens and Ladies' squads unveiled Liverpool's new kit last week ahead of the new season
As the dust settles on a tough season for Liverpool, many fans are reflecting on what might have been for their club. In a season which saw two final losses, and an 8th-placed finish in the league, as well as the exit of Brendan Rodgers in October, the Northern Irishman replaced by German mastermind Jürgen Klopp.
Of course, Brendan Rodgers' legacy is nothing which will easily be forgotten: in 2013-14, he took Liverpool's title race right to the wire, but couldn't build on that 2nd placed season the following year, and a lacklustre start to this season saw his time at Anfield brought to an end.
The start of Klopp's reign was also a mixed bag, as he masterminded a 3-1 win over Chelsea at Stamford Bridge, and a masterful 4-1 win at the Etihad stadium. But it wasn't all going to come up Roses. There were league defeats against the likes of Watford and Newcastle, as well as a bitter defeat against Manchester City in the Capital One Cup Final, and an FA Cup exit at the hands of West Ham.
Many though, have pointed at the squad Klopp inherited; and did little to reshape last season. The players are certainly there for a full-blown assault on the league, particularly as the side will play no European football next season, following a heartbreaking loss to Sevilla in the Europa League
Last season's Player of the Year, Phillipe Coutinho, will be critical for Liverpool this season, and is one of the players almost guaranteed to be safe as Klopp rebuilds his squad. Other critical players will likely include Roberto Firmino - who eventually made his mark last season after settling in Liverpool - Daniel Sturridge, who has returned to full fitness this summer after a haul of 13 goals in the league over a season which was constantly interrupted.
Klopp has also shown his willingness to give chances to youngsters with Divock Origi one player who seemed to undergo a huge transformation under Klopp last year
