Liverpool willing to take the same risk as last season

"Everyone is thinking about the Champions League qualifier but Watford is the first target".

Watford have won just one of their last nine meetings with the Merseysiders, with last season's meeting at Vicarage Road resulting in a 1-0 win for the visitors courtesy of a goal from midfield dynamo Can. It seems Salah has settled so fast after leaving AS Roma, as he impressively displayed his skills and composure with the ball during the pre-season.

They host title contenders Liverpool at Vicarage Road in their opening fixture of the Premier League season, when fellow England Under-21 global Nathaniel Chalobah and £13million Brazilian Richarlison could also make their competitive bows for the club.

Klopp's plan this season revolves around signings and training, which are important steps for building on their base from where they left last season. "I'm excited about the start of the new season". The Brazilian has dispatched two excellent penalties in pre-season, against Atletico Madrid and Athletic Bilbao.

The Reds are once again using a stop gap method in the hope that better options become available next summer, and once again, James Milner appears to be the man to fill the role. Benitez rested a number of regulars for the trip to Bramall Lane, a fact conveniently overlooked by then Blades' boss Neil Warnock, who took exception to the Spaniard adopting the same policy late in the season in a loss at Fulham that ensured Warnock's team were relegated. Klopp expressed his sentiments to United Kingdom outlets that Coutinho will stay at Anfield because he is part of his plan this season with the club keen to navigate a tricky Champions League playoff round tie with German club Hoffenheim.

Simon Mignolet is likely to continue his dominance over Loris Karius in the goalkeeping position for the Premier League opener after the Belgian show drastic improvement to his form at the back end of last season.

The Reds' free-flowing attacking play can hurt any team.

First coming to the attention of European football fans during two eye-catching seasons in Switzerland with Basel, Salah had his first stab at the Premier League with Chelsea in 2014.

Liverpool will take on Hoffenheim in the Champions League play-off round as they look to book their place in the group stage of the competition.
