After finishing in fifth place in the Premier League a year ago, four points behind fourth-place Newcastle, Liverpool will be forced to make do without Champions League football for the first time since Jurgen Klopp's first season in charge, which was nine seasons ago. Instead, Liverpool will shift their focus to Europa League football after finishing in fifth place in the Premier League.

The Reds were unable to mount a real push for any major silverware last season, instead witnessing their recent adversaries Manchester City win a historic treble and rivals Manchester United take the EFL Cup. This came after the Reds took their pursuit of an unprecedented quadruple all the way to the wire in 2021-22, but ultimately fell short.

During the preseason, Liverpool had mixed results in attack and defense, with 19 goals scored and 10 conceded over five friendly matches. This occurred while the club is making midfield adjustments behind the scenes. The Reds have won games against Karlsruhe, Leicester City, and Darmstadt, with the most recent victory coming on Monday with a score of 3-1 against Darmstadt. However, a 4-4 tie with Greuther Furth and a 4-3 loss to Bayern Munich indicate that Klopp's team has not yet reached their full potential.

However, Liverpool has had little trouble making a great start to life in the Premier League. In fact, they have not lost a top-flight opener in any of the last ten seasons – winning eight and drawing two – and a victory at Stamford Bridge on Sunday would put an end to their seven-game winless run against Chelsea.
