Breaking News

Liverpool have unveiled their new manager, and to the surprise of many it isn't Rafa Benitez. Santiago Alguacil, a good friend of Benitez's was given the job which many fans won't be happy about. Alguacil had a great professional career as a player, but is yet to step into management and many believe Liverpool is too high of a starting point for such a new managers career. The 53 year old is reportedly delighted to be given the oppurtunity to continue what Klopp had started and is said to be over the moon with the squad he has inherited.

Board Expectations:
English Premier League: Finish in a Champions League Position
F.A Cup: Reach the Final
Champions League: Reach the Semi Finals
Carabao Cup: Not Important

Bank Balance: £58,520,920
Transfer Budget: £48,400,000
Wage Budget: £3,288,977 P/W (Spending £3,037,970 P/W)






Starting XI:

Matthiijs De Ligt - £36.5m
Jadon Sancho - £39m (Possible £53m)
Luka Jovic - £44m

Adam Lallana - Arsenal - £54m
Divock Origi - Atletico Madrid - £23m
Daniel Sturridge - Leicester City - £19m
Dejan Lovren - Paris Saint Germain - £26m

After using up the transfer budget alongside the money raised from player sales, here is what the current bench looks like. The starting XI is unchanged. Depending on player sales and performances leading up to January, there probably won't be any more signings this season.
Pre-season friendly results:
Woking (A) - 6-0
MSV Duisburg (A) - 1-0
Torino (A) - 2-2
Barcelona (H) 4-0

Matchday 1: Watford (H)

8' - Goal Liverpool: Fabinho (P)
28' - Goal Liverpool: Adam Masina (OG)
30' - Goal Liverpool: Trent Alexander-Arnold (FK)
FT 3-0
Despite the scoreline, Liverpool's attack were lacklustre today and they relied on set pieces to help them pick up the 3 points, they will have to play better against harder opposition.

Matchday 2: Southampton (A)

12' - Offside Goal: Trent Alexander-Arnold
38' - Goal Liverpool: Joe Gomez
91' - Offside Goal: Luka Jovic
Liverpool found the back of the net 3 times against Southampton, being offside on 2 occasions. Joe Gomez's rocket header turned out to be the only goal in the game.

Matchday 3: Newcastle (H)

11' - Injury - Andrew Robertson
72' - Goal Liverpool: Roberto Firmino
81' - Goal Liverpool: Naby Keita
Liverpool dominated Newcastle today, Firmino's neat finish put them infront and Keita's thunderbolt from outside the area secure the victory for the reds. Despite the win, Liverpool will be without Andrew Robertson for 4-5 weeks after he picked up a Groin Strain in the 11th minute.

August Overview

Liverpool were undefeated in August, scoring 6 goals and conceding 0. They currently sit 2nd in the league, behind only Manchester City on goal difference. Despite picking up 3 wins, only 1 of Liverpools deadly front 3 picked up a goal, which could prove a problem later in the season.
Player of the month
Liverpools player of the month is undoubtedly the youngster Trent Alexander-Arnold, picking up 1 goal and 1 assist in 3 appearances.
Good start so far, goodluck for the rest of the season.
Great start, shame about Robertson's injury though.

Liverpools defeat at the hands of Dortmund means qualifications for the RO16 relies on Real Madrid beating Dortmund, they could well be heading out early in the tournament. Not good.

Matchday 14: Chelsea (A)

Matchday 19: Wolves (H)

41' - Goal Liverpool: Jonny (OG)
59' - Goal Liverpool: Naby Keita

An easy victory for Liverpool as they retain 1st place but a huge blow as Andy Robertson suffers another setback as he will be sidelined for 5-6 weeks with torn Wrist ligaments. A huge blow to Liverpools title charge.
