Liverpool have made progress under Jurgen Klopp and teaching two cup finals in his first eight months in charge are a testament to the fact that he is the right man to get the reds back on track. With all the money that will be spent by the rich clubs in England and by the appointment of brilliant managers like Guardiola and Conte, the reds face a stern test next season as they look to grab a place in the top four next season. Jurgen Klopp has brought belief back into the club and the supporters are hopeful of a turnaround in fortunes for the reds under the enigmatic German.

New signings are very much needed every season for any team in the world and how fast the club addresses their weak ares determine the speed at which the team can progress further. Liverpool are strengthening their weak areas which started with the arrival of Joel Matip and Loris Karius which will surely help the reds in leaking fewer goals next season. Sadio Mane brings pace to the reds attack and let’s look at how Liverpool’s attack will look come next season :

Left wing : Philippe Coutinho

The Brazilian was the centre of attraction from PSG last month but the club has made it clear that the talented playmaker will be a Liverpool player next season at any cost. Coutinho has proved his worth in the team and has turned many games on its head single handedly. He brings unpredictability to the reds attack and will need to be more consistent if Liverpool are going to challenge for a top spot next season.

Attacking Midfield : Roberto Firmino

Firmino has settled well at Anfield and after a stellar first season, he will look to continue his good form in the 2016-17 season. Firmino has proved his worth and made a statement to his critics which doubted him when he arrived in England and labeled him a flop. Jurgen Klopp can build a team around him and his contribution in the important games makes him one of the most important members in the red’s attack.

Right wing : Sadio Mane

The Senegalese has everything that Liverpool missed last season. He has pace, he is direct and his contribution to the game is immense. His involvement in a goal or assist per game is higher than Coutinho and even Mesut Ozil makes him one of the most feared players in the league. Mane is a brilliant signing for the reds and he brings an X factor to the Klopp’s team combined with his tremendous work rate which suits the manager’s style perfectly.

Striker : Daniel Sturridge

Sturridge is the most talented striker that Liverpool have at this moment and though he has his fair share of critics, no one can deny the fact that if he stays fit, there are not many strikers in the league that can match up to him. His goal per game ratio is greater than any Liverpool striker and now he is five months free of any injury (fingers crossed), if he builds up his fitness and stays fit, Liverpool are guaranteed of a better season than the last.

The trio of Coutinho, Firmino and Mane can play a free roaming role and with the pace of Mane, vision of Coutinho, execution of Firmino and finishing of Sturridge, Liverpool will have one of the best attacks in the league and having Adam Lallana, Divock Origi and Danny Ings on the bench, Klopp can achieve a brilliant next season with a brilliant attack at his disposal.
