Liverpool’s Premier League Title Odds Are Starting To Drift
Liverpool will be aiming to go one better in the Premier League title race after going agonisingly close last term, but their odds on a 19th championship title have drifted without them even kicking a ball.
Jurgen Klopp's men were pipped to the post by Manchester City by one point despite the Reds only suffering one defeat from their 38 Premier League games last season.
Another two-horse race between Manchester City and Liverpool is expected in the 2019/20 title race, but off the back of a quiet transfer window for the Reds their odds on finally winning the Premier League crown have lengthened from 9/4 (+225) to 5/2 (+250) with BetVictor.
The Reds have only so far brought in highly-rated young Dutch defender Sepp van den Berg this summer, but he is unlikely to be thrust straight into the first-team and is seen as one for the future.
Klopp has been linked with a number of top stars during this summer's transfer window, but the German has conceded this is unlikely to be a big window for the Reds having spent heavily in the last 18 months.
Klopp has already revealed concerns for his players suffering possible burnout this season having returned late to pre-season duty because of international commitments and a congested fixture list.
Liverpool will contest in the Community Shield, the European Super Cup, the FIFA Club World Cup, The Champions League, the Carabao Cup, the FA Cup and, of course, the Premier League this season.
The hectic schedule will test Klopp's selection and rotation policy and with not many new signings made this summer it is sure to stretch Liverpool's resources to the maximum.

Liverpool topped the Premier League table last Christmas and they are rated at 11/8 (+138) with BetVictor to be top of the charts on Christmas Day in 2019 and best priced 7/4 (+175) with Coral and Ladbrokes.
After suffering just the one league loss last season, to City, which proved costly in the end in the destination of the title, Liverpool are available at 50/1 (+5000) with BetVictor to go the whole of the 2019/20 season unbeaten.
Liverpool’s Trophy Odds
The Reds famously won their sixth European Cup in June with victory over Tottenham in Madrid and they are 7/1 (+700) in the Champions League outright betting.
Liverpool have not enjoyed the best of records in the FA Cup under Klopp with the German having never made it past the fourth round in four previous attempts, but the Reds are second favourites behind Manchester City to lift the famous trophy.
BetVictor rate them 5/1 (+500) to go all to the way to Wembley but the seven-time FA Cup winners are best priced 6/1 (+600) with Betfair and Paddy Power.
The Anfield outfit have won the League Cup – now under the guise of the Carabao Cup – a record eight times and they are 7/1 (+700) with BetVictor to make it nine next year.
