With all six group games played in six consecutive midweeks between October and December, it will be a really intense period for all English clubs involved with Premier League games, which are still taking place over the weekend.
It will be tough, no one can get away with it, but I take encouragement from how fit Liverpool are at the moment, the energy level against Arsenal was ridiculous.
Champions League games will be over and we want to regain that trophy after being disappointed by the way Atletico Madrid bowed out last season.
At the same time we cannot afford to give up our standards in the Premier League, because especially after the start, how tireless and how relentless we were last season, all the other teams will be tightly in our armor and You don’t even want to give them a glimpse of hope.
What’s important is to have the cover all over the pitch and I think, especially with the hints of Thiago and Jota, that we’ve got now.
Anything can happen to injuries, we are already missing something, but that is why you have different options and many rounds of Carabao Cup are being played, as we will have help this season Because some fringe players have more minutes in their feet than they usually would.
There is real depth to the squad and I think we will need it because there is a draw in the winter, because we have injuries or not and you have to expect something, Klopp would like to manage the fitness of the players, like he always did. Huh. Still bright in the new year and spring when the season’s trade finally kicks.
Why Should I Sign Up?
Premier League champions Liverpool are set to challenge for the seventh European crown.
The Reds will locate their opponents in the group stages when the draw is made in October.

You see players who hardly look like young lads this season like Jordan Henderson, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Joel Matip as well as Curtis Jones and Neko Williams to show what they can do And it proves it. What a great job Klopp, Michael Edwards and the recruiting team have done in recent years.
It will be interesting to see how the team looks as the transfer window closes early next week.
It has been talked through the summer that Zerdan may like Shakiri, Divock Origi, Ryan Brewster, Harry Wilson and Marco Grujic and we know that the manager in general doesn’t like a very big team because it’s not always possible Everyone gets enough playing time.
It’s such an unusual season and, while we may yet see one or two departures, I don’t think it’s the worst thing in the world if the squad is a little bigger than normal which gives us extra protection if we get Hit with a big injury list.
If the club does not want offers at the right level, these lads have shown that they can do one thing when needed and it may just be a matter of coming in January and seeing things again.
* I don’t usually talk about politics, but I can’t figure out how this government allows people to go and mix in pubs and restaurants with the number of Kovid, but parents and grandparents in their Children cannot stand in the open air on the touchline to watch them play football.
It makes no sense that people could stand in line with supermarkets and social mess, but not allowed to be on the same football field all over the place and with fresh air.
This is completely beyond me and I wanted to get my frustration out on this because I know many people would be feeling the same way.
It is not whether there are hundreds of people or not, it is a dozen toppers.
I can’t get my head around it and it’s just not right, but I hope they can at least keep kids from playing football and keep fingers crossed.
