Liverpool secured a Champions League qualification place after finishing fourth in the Premier League last season; securing a place in Europe’s elite competition for the first time since 2014.
Jurgen Klopp’s men started the season in blistering form and were hot on the heels of Chelsea in the Premier League title race during October, but their momentum stopped following some poor results in the new year.
However, the Reds managed to salvage fourth place to secure European football at Anfield next year.
Using the power of Football Manager 17, we simulated the 2017/18 season to see how Liverpool will fare next campaign…
Liverpool have brought in three players already this summer – Mohamed Salah from Roma, Andrew Robertson from Hull and Dominic Solanke from Chelsea.
Andre Wisdom, Kevin Stewart and Lucas Leiva have all departed the club with more departures expected.
The Reds have actively pursued Southampton’s Virgil Van Dijk this summer with the player reportedly keen on forcing through a move to Merseyside and Klopp was able to secure his signature for £65m on our simulation; the last transfer of the summer window.
In January, Robertson departed the club bound for Stoke on loan as Liverpool spent £20m to bring in Bayern Munich left-back, Juan Bernat as well as Andreas Samaris from Benfica for £10m.
A host of players left the club on loan with Marko Grujic, Joe Gomez and Trent Alexander Arnold joining Robertson and Solanke out of the club on a temporary basis.
