Liverpool have a tendency to make life difficult for themselves, but seeing that they have an easy group they would be expected to top it.
A lot will depend on Liverpool’s new signings, especially since this season Liverpool are realistically challenging for a top 3 spot again and would want to reach at least the quarter-finals of the Champions League.
The big question is:
Can Liverpool be consistent and create a cohesive lineup that does not struggle against lesser teams?
Liverpool have probably the toughest month ahead of them of the whole lot, and if they can come out of this period in the top 4, they’ll have a good shot at the title.
