Liverpool players are looking ready to hit the ground running with an impressive victory over AC Milan in their pre-season friendly fixture. The Reds have been on the run and Klopp is ensuring that the players are in their strides before the season begins. This season is different for Liverpool and no European football means that the Reds can concentrate completely on the league and will also look forward to complete it in a better position as compared to the last year. The Reds faced a lot of injury woes in the last season, especially in the attacking area with Ings and Sturridge being outlined for quite some time. However, this time around, things are looking a bit different as the Reds look much more confident in attack as compared to the last time and also have more options in terms of personnel.

The attacking dynamics-

The Reds have a wide array of attacking options this time around with the likes of Ings and Sturridge returning to full fitness and the others also looking in good shape. Jurgen Klopp has the services of Sturrdige, Origi, Firmino, Ings and Mane at his disposal in attack and all of these are quality players who can create a difference. Also, once the deals of Benteke and Balotelli are confirmed, Klopp will definitely look to add a few attacking options for his side. Considering that, Liverpool are currently looking in a decent shape and if the form and fitness continues, then this season might bring favourable results for the manager.

Ings vs Origi-

Divock Origi arrived to Anfield after a tough season in France, but he showed his class and potential for his new team with impressive performances in the league as well as in Europe. Danny Ings was considered as the third choice striker last season, but his prolonged injury left him sidelined for most of the season last campaign. Ings is a player who promises quality and if he is in his right momentum, he can do wonders. This season will be an opportunity for the striker to prove his worth to the manager and earn his spot. However, his competitor, Divock Origi, also is a promising figure and has already impressed Klopp in the last season. He will be a key figure in the attack and should be the second option to Daniel Sturridge for the center forward role. Both have quick feet, good finishing abilities and a sound attacking presence, but they will have to prove it to their manager to get a spot in the starting line-up.
