Liverpool spent heavily in the transfer market this summer.
Sky Sports pundit Paul Merson predicted that Liverpool would finish in second position in the Premier League table this season, when writing a column for Sky Sports, although he did point out their Achilles heel.
The Reds were one of the most exciting teams to watch in world football last season, but they still ended up in fourth spot in the table, a massive 25 points adrift of Pep Guardiola's sensational Manchester City side.
Liverpool have spent heavily this summer, however, splashing out nearly £180 million on four new players, and Jürgen Klopp now seems to have built a group of players who are more than capable of winning major honours.
Merson is a big fan of what Liverpool have done during this summer's transfer window, and backed them to finish second this season, when writing a column for Sky Sports, although he did offer the Merseysiders a word of warning:
"They've made unbelievable signings. Xherdan Shaqiri could be one of the signings of the window, he could be worth £35m now and the season hasn't even started. This team will close the gap. 25 points is a lot to make up in one season. It won't be though a lack of good buys, though, because they are really good buys. Their Achilles heel for me will be against the lesser teams and if they can break them down but I'm all over Liverpool, I think they're the team who will come second."
Liverpool begin their Premier League campaign with a home game against West Ham United on Sunday, and Reds fans will be eagerly anticipating seeing their new stars in action for the first time competitively.
