Liverpool will be challenging on seven fronts next season after the Reds won the Champions League against Tottenham on Saturday.

Before last weekend, Jurgen Klopp’ side was due to take part in five different competitions but by being named the Champions of Europe, they’ve been included in two extra cups.

They were due to challenge in the Premier League, Champions League, FA Cup, Carabao Cup and the Community Shield where they will face Manchester City.

However, after their triumph at the Wanda Metropolitano, Liverpool will also take part in the UEFA Super Cup and the Club World Cup which is set to be hosted by Qatar.

While being involved in so many competitions could be seen as a boost to their chances of winning silverware again next season, Klopp cannot afford to slip up in the transfer market this summer.

Klopp must look to add more quality in depth to avoid slipping up and with a few players leaving this summer, signing one or two extra players on top of what is already planned is necessary.

Winning the Premier League is Liverpool’s main priority but the UEFA Super Cup, the Community Shield and the FIFA Club World Cup should be seen as added opportunities to boost the Anfield trophy cabinet.

Klopp’s Reds will be hugely confident heading into the 2019/20 season and there’s no reason they can’t have a huge trophy haul in a year’s time.
