Cape Town - English Premier League runners-up, Liverpool will be aiming to do one better in the upcoming 2019/2020 campaign after being agonisingly denied last term by champions Manchester City.

Jurgen Klopp's side though finished last season as European champions and will take heart in the fact that there is much room for improvement compared to Pep Guardiola's richly-assembled squad.

The bookies again have Man City as favourites to lift another Premier League trophy with odds of 57/100 ahead of Liverpool (23/10), Tottenham Hotspur (16/1) and Chelsea (20/1).

Klopp so far has just made one signing with defender Sepp van den Berg being brought in from PEC Zwolle for a reported £1.3 million.
