After finishing second in the Premier League in 2013-2014, Liverpool slumped in 2014-2015, falling out of the Champions League in the group stage and dropping out of the top four with a 2-2-5 record in their last nine games of the season. Liverpool’s disappointing sixth finish in the Premier League, and poor form in both striking and defense, led to major signings like Danny Ings, Nathaniel Clyne, James Milner, and Roberto Firmino. Raheem Sterling’s status with the club is still up in the air, but the Reds are linked with big Belgian Christian Benteke if Sterling leaves the club. The team will also be led by a new captain for the first time since 2003, as Jordan Henderson was named as the replacement for Steven Gerrard as Liverpool captain on July 10, 2015.

Liverpool has the toughest first 10 games of the season, traveling to four of the top 10 teams from 2014-2015, and has a trip to holders Chelsea in their 11th game. Their depth from all of the offseason transfers will be tested early, but the Reds have six of their last 10 games of the season at home, with a trip to St. Mary’s Stadium to play Southampton on March 19, 2016 as the toughest game in the second half of the season.
