Liverpool struggled last season. The Reds were off the boil with a number of excuses to point to. An injury crisis was largely to blame but there was a serious lack of intensity due to empty stadiums. Some Liverpool fans think we’re winning to league now that Anfield is set to be full for next season.
The Reds started last season brightly.
Jürgen Klopp’s side beat Chelsea, Arsenal and Leeds United. We looked set to defend the title.
Then an unprecedented injury crisis set in.
Virgil van Dijk and Joe Gomez were ruled out for the season early on whilst Thiago and Diogo Jota also suffered lengthy absences.

With the squad stretched thin things fell apart and the lack of fans in the stadium didn’t help.
Usually Kopites can do enough to inspire the lads to victory.
Without the fans there intensity dropped off and so did the results.
Anfield at full capacity
Sky reported this week that the government plans to have football stadiums full by the start of the season.
Plans are in place for grounds to be at full capacity from the 19th of July.
The move is one which has delighted supporters up and down the country.
Furthermore, it is a move which surely benefits Liverpool the most.
Anfield is renowned for its rowdy atmosphere, for the fans’ ability to change a result.
Teams will fear heading to Anfield again and that could make all the difference in what promises to be a tight title race.
