Following on from our comprehensive lowdown of Manchester City’s prospects this season, we at Compare Betting Sites now turn our attention to their main title challengers, Liverpool, as we continue our build-up to the new Premier League season. 

A first Premier League title? 

Jurgen Klopp claimed his first silverware as Liverpool boss last season, guiding the club to a sixth Champions League title. However, it is no secret that the Premier League title remains the ultimate ambition for the Anfield club. 

Liverpool have been crowned English league champions on 18 occasions however the last of those successes came way back in 1989/90, prior to the formation of the Premier League. The forthcoming Premier League season will mark 30 years since that last league triumph however, last season they came closer than ever to ending that barren run. 

In 2018/19 Liverpool finished second in the Premier League despite losing just once and clocking up an incredible tally of 96 points. That points total represents the highest achieved by a team that has failed to win the title. Can Liverpool go one better than their second-placed finish last season? The Reds are currently 10/3 to win the Premier League title with Black Type. 

Golden Boot 

Liverpool have built arguably the best defensive line in English football however their electric front three remain their biggest asset. Any potential success for Liverpool in the coming season hinges on the form and fitness of their forward line. 

Incredibly two of the three players to share last season’s Premier League Golden Boot were Liverpool players. Only Arsenal forward, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, could match the 22-goal haul of Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane. 

Salah has now finished as the league’s top scorer in each of the past two seasons. Only Alan Shearer has topped the scoring charts in three consecutive Premier League seasons. If Liverpool are to claim a first ever Premier League title you feel it’ll be the Egyptian’s goals that get them over the line. Therefore, a Liverpool/Salah double in the Premier League’s outright markets could be a superb bet at 16/1 with William Hill. Salah is commonly available at 5/1 to claim a third successive Golden Boot. 

After sharing last season’s Golden Boot, Sadio Mane, will again be expected to get amongst the goals in the forthcoming campaign. The Senegal international is a superb each-way option at 16/1 with RedZone. The popular bookmakers will pay out for the first four places. 

Mane guided Senegal to the final of this summer’s African Cup of Nations. Only that lack of a proper pre-season will be enough to prevent Mane being right up there in the scoring charts again. 

Roberto Firmino was very much in the shadows of his teammates, Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane last season but at 50/1 with SpreadEx, the Brazilian international could prove a solid each-way option in the Golden Boot race. 

Golden Glove 

Brazilian international goalkeeper, Alisson, certainly lived up to his hefty price tag in the 2018/19 season, claiming the Golden Glove in the Premier League, Champions League and Copa America. After a dominant season between the posts, Alisson will hope to pick up where he left off when the new season gets underway next weekend. 

With Manchester City’s Ederson his only realistic competition in the race for the 2019/20 Golden Glove, Betfair’s 5/6 for Alisson to claim the award again could prove a steal. 

PFA Player of the Year 

Virgil van Dijk was a revelation at the heart of Liverpool’s defence last season and became the first defender since John Terry in 2004/05 to win the PFA’s Player of the Year award. Hoping to pick up where he left off, van Dijk is commonly available at 14/1 to claim back-to-back awards – a feat only achieved twice before by Cristiano Ronaldo and Thierry Henry. 

Van Dijk bucked the trend last season in winning an award that is usually dominated by attackers. If you fancy a return to the status quo then head on over to William Hill where you can back Mo Salah Sadio Mane at 9/1 and 18/1 respectively. 

PFA Young Player of the Year 

Not only did van Dijk prove to be a formidable central defender last season but his influence on The Reds’ younger defenders was evident. If, as expected young English pair, Trent Alexander-Arnold and Joe Gomez, have another fine season for Liverpool, both will be on the shortlist for the PFA’s Young Player of the Year award. William Hill have installed Alexander-Arnold as 7/1 favourite for the gong whilst Gomez is a 16/1 shot. 

At 33/1, Rhian Brewster will attract plenty of interest but it may come at least one season too soon for the 19-year old forward. 

Champions League 

Liverpool were the surprise winners of the Champions League last season, beating Tottenham Hotspur 2-0 in the first all-English final for a decade. The Reds reached the final after completing one of the greatest comebacks in the competition’s history. Trailing 3-0 to Barcelona from the first leg of their semi-final, Liverpool completed a famous 4-0 second leg win in front of an electric Anfield crowd. Thanks to their obvious European pedigree and unrivalled home support, Liverpool are a modest 15/2 with Betway to defend their Champions League title this coming season. 

Ballon D’Or 

Liverpool may have fallen agonisingly short in last season’s Premier League title race but they were so impressive in winning a sixth Champions League title that four of the top six players in the 2019 Ballon D’Or betting ply their trade at Anfield. Inevitably, Messi (13/8) and Cristiano Ronaldo (16/1) are prominent in the betting markets but it is Dutch defender, Virgil van Dijk that is the odds-on favourite at 8/11 with Betfair. 

Alisson’s achievements in winning a hat-trick of Golden Glove awards makes the Brazilian stopper a strong candidate at 14/1 whilst Premier League Golden Boot duo, Sadio Mane (20/1) and Mohamed Salah (33/1) are also amongst those in contention. Were it not for a disappointing African Cup of Nations, Salah would probably be a lot shorter in price. 

Sign Up Early

As the countdown to the new Premier League campaign continues, now could be the perfect time to place your outright bets on Liverpool. The Reds kick-off the new season on Friday evening as they host newly-promoted, Norwich City at Anfield. A big win for the hosts will undoubtedly see several of these outright markets slashed in price. Sign up today via Compare Betting Sites and make use of some fantastic welcome bonuses.
