The Champions League group stage draw takes place today, and Liverpool are expected to come out on top of the pitches given the extraordinary nature of the match this season.
With six group games being played consecutively in the Midweeks from October to December, this will be a really intense period for all English clubs associated with the Premier League games, apparently still happening on the weekends.
It’s going to be tough, there’s nothing to get rid of, but I’m encouraging how appropriate Liverpool are at the moment, and the levels against Arsenal have been ridiculous.
The Champions League games will be full, and we want to win back that trophy after the disappointment of leaving Atletico Madrid like we did last season.
At the same time, we can not abandon our standards in the Premier League, especially since we were so exhausted last season since we started, you do not want to give them even a glimmer of hope that all other teams will look for a chink in our armor.
Having the cover across the pitch was crucial, especially with the signatures of Thiago and Jotta I think we got it now.
Anything can happen with injuries, we have lost a few things right now, but that’s why you should have different options and play several rounds of the Carabao Cup this season will help because some boundaries will help players have more minutes on their feet than they normally do.
The squad has real depth, and I think we need it as winter approaches, because whether we have injuries or not you have to expect a little, and Klopp wants to manage the fitness of the players, as he always does when the business starts at the end of the season and still shines in the new year and spring.
Why do I need to sign up?

This season we look at players like Jordan Henderson, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Joel Mattip and youngsters like Curtis Jones and Neko Williams trying to show what they can do, which proves that Klopp, Michael Edwards and the recruitment team have done a great job lately.
It will be interesting to see what Squad looks like when the transfer window closes early next week.
There are talks going on over the summer about the likes of Sherdan Shakiri, Dvok Origi, Ryan Brewster, Harry Wilson and Marco Grujic, and we know that the manager does not want to include a big team because it is not always possible. Get enough game time for everyone.
This is an unusual season, and although we may still see one or two departures, I don’t think it would be the worst thing in the world if the squad was a little bigger than usual. Edit with a large injury list.
These youngsters have proven that if the offers do not come at the right level that the club wants, they can do a job when needed, which could be a case of coming back in January and looking at things again.
* I do not speak ordinary politics, but I do not understand how this government allows people to join pubs and restaurants where the number of Kovids is increasing, but parents and grandparents can not stand in the open on the touchline to watch their children play football.
It makes no sense that people can stand in queues at supermarkets and other social distances, but having all the space and fresh air on a football field will not allow that to happen.
It’s completely beyond me, and I wanted to express my frustration with it, because I know a lot of people will experience it.
Hundreds of people don’t seem to be there, it’s in two dozen styles.
I can not lean around, it’s not right, but I hope they can at least let the kids play football and improve things quickly by getting their fingers crossed.
