I’ve changed my mind and now think Liverpool will win the title next season. We’ve learned so much as a team over the past 2 seasons in particular. Our title challenge came with so many different tests that an older Liverpool would have stumbled over, or failed completely but we generally got the results last time out.
The development in terms of mentality is where it will be won, I think. Winning the CL puts the sheen back on a long and hard campaign and it will only galvanise the group, with this summer’s development being less on structural additions (core player arrivals) and more on polish (training ground work).
Other sides will improve, I think. I can see the title being won with 80 something points.
