Last season, Mo Salah helped Liverpool to Champions League glory with a victory in the final of the competition over Tottenham. The Egyptian superstar may go one better this season, with a Champions League and Premier League double up for grabs.
Although last season was special for Liverpool, there is no doubt that this season has been even better for them. After losing out on the league title on the final day of last season, it seems a matter of time until Liverpool are confirmed as champions of England this season, well before the final games take place.
With the league in full control and manager Jurgen Klopp able to really focus on the Champions League even more than he did last season, can Liverpool claim back to back Champions League titles this season?
As far as the Premier League goes, betting on them to win the title has already ended, the bookmakers and pretty much all Premier League fans see this as a contest that is already over. Betting on the Champions League is far more interesting however. The competition returns on the 18th February, with Liverpool travelling to Spain to face Atletico Madrid in the first leg of their last 16 tie. Liverpool are favourites for that tie, which would see them move to the quarter finals with a win.
Then, as much as quality is needed, experience and fitness are going to be of huge benefit to Liverpool. By being able to rest players in the league because they have all but won it, and by having the good memories from winning the competition last season, does that make Liverpool favourites to win it again? Many think so, and many are backing them to do so. With bookmakers like Bet365 offering free bets for new customers, this is a great time to sign up with them and place wagers on the Champions League action as it returns in February.
Should Liverpool go all the way once again then their front three is going to be vitally important just as they were last season, with Egyptian Mo Salah playing an important role in that three. He is joined by Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino to give them one of the best, if not the best, attacking lines in the world right now.
Each players has their own individual skills and qualities that bring together something special when they are on the field. Of the three players, Salah is the one who plays further forward than the other two, and he is seen as the most natural finisher out of the trio. Those combined means that he is in the perfect position to fire in the goals that will take Liverpool to glory this season.
The Premier League is pretty much in the bag, although they do still need a final few wins to officially wrap things up. Then it is the turn of the Champions League, and a bid for back to back titles.
