    I suppose i'm just testing the waters to see how people feel about what some of our players are capable of this season.
    We've done Salah to death so i'll leave him out if this but what are your expectations for this lot:

    1. Adam Lallana

    2. Trent Alexander Arnold

    3. Naby Keita

    4. Andy Robertson

    5. Sadio Mane

    1. Adam Lallana
    Not much

    2. Trent Alexander Arnold
    Improvement defensively. Expect him to be the same in attack. Maybe a couple of more goals?

    3. Naby Keita
    Should make the biggest difference to our play this season. Counter pressing and loads of assists with the odd goal here and there.

    4. Andy Robertson
    Same as last season. Super solid with some great overlap + crossing.

    5. Sadio Mane
    More goals

    6. Shaq
    I think he might become a mainstay in midfield, plus great impact as sub on the wing.

    1. Adam Lallana – anything close to 2016-17 form would be nice, but it will be difficult to find rhythm with so much quality competition.

    2. Trent Alexander Arnold – to become the best attacking right-back in the league.

    3. Naby Keita – I don't know if we should expect too much too soon. His ultimate position will probably be in the midfield 2, but since he's young and new to the league maybe Klopp will use him in a more attacking role this season before gradually entrusting him with more defensive responsibility.

    4. Andy Robertson – continue where he left off and keep Moreno out of the team.

    5. Sadio Mane – to improve his passing and decision-making so he can be a real goal-scoring #10.

    1. I believe Lallana will have a difficult season. He need games to get Things going for him, and With his injury history I think he will have problems being picked in the leageu. Hence the cups will be his arena this season.
    2. Trent will build on last season. Play plenty of games and continue to progress. I have high hopes that he will have a good season.
    3. Naby will get plenty of games and will shine for us. He will be better the more he gets used to the movement of Our front players and he will bag 1 Player of the month this season.
    4. Andy will be just as good as last season. Humble, hard working and get more goalpoints as well.
    5. Mane will be our icing of the cake. Last season was his highest tally when it came to goalpoints and he will improve that.

    1. Adam Lallana - will struggle for game time unless someone gets injured.

    2. Trent Alexander Arnold - 5 goals, plenty of assists (a main outlet for Alisson) but not as much progress defensively.

    3. Naby Keita Highest assist tally in the leaugue

    4. Andy Robertson A very high level steady eddie

    5. Sadio Mane Increased threat from Naby and Xherry drawing defenders could lead to a bumper harvest for Sadio

    Lallana- I would like him to be fit enough to provide quality backup in the PL/ CL and perhaps be a mainstay in the cup sides. I'm starting to doubt that is possible, and would not have been hugely saddened to have seen him shipped out.

    Arnold- I think he's going to bolster his reputation massively and earn a new contract in the process.  I expect to see more set-piece success too.


    Keita- once he gets into a run I think he's going to be a midfielder that will really worry the opposition in a way that hasn't been the case since we had an in-form Gerrard.  He is bound to frustrate at times too, and Dreamy's wish (a sending off) may well happen one or two times this season. We may hope it doesn't cost us.  All-in-all, I expect him to be a perfect fit for us, and for the style of footy in the Premier league.

    Robbo-  Klopp better not start Moreno ahead of him. S'all I'm saying. He's going to cement his cult status, and I fancy him to be the FB with the highest number of assists in the league.

    Mane- he's going to be fucking boss.

    1. Adam Lallana
    Bit part role only

    2. Trent Alexander Arnold
    1st choice RB for both Liverpool and England. May have occassional game at DM and score about 5 goals.

    3. Naby Keita
    Legend status incoming.. C.10 goals and C.10 assists. But just bullies opponents.

    4. Andy Robertson
    More of the same from last season.

    5. Sadio Mane
    Cuntyo who? Continues his form from Jan onwards.

    Lallana  -  Not much. Possibilities of him being shipped out in Jan as gets limited game time with Shaqiri and Sturridge getting more.

    Keita - To pay for next years season ticket when he wins the PFA. I maxed out on him before the season began with Skybet.

    Mane - To get back to the level he was before Salah turned up and seemed to upset the status quo for a little bit. Fully expect him to rip through teams this season again.

    Both full backs - To continue to put in world crosses and become pillars of the defence alongside VVD in completely snuffing out what are supposed to be good attacking sides.

    1. Adam Lallana - Always liked/rated him but even getting onto the bench could be an issue for him this season. We'll keep him for now for depth and sell next Summer.

    2. Trent Alexander Arnold  - Better crossing and he will take the next step up. Consistency.

    3. Naby Keita  - PL Player of the Season (or at least Top 5)

    4. Andy Robertson  - More consistency with crossing / passing in the final third. Otherwise more of the same.

    5. Sadio Mane  - Man has he already stepped up ! Vying with Salah for top scorer.  Not sure how much better he can become - more consistency perhaps.
