3 reasons why Liverpool will win the Premier League this season

Liverpool are among the most successful football clubs in England. However, the Reds were last crowned as the Champions of England back in 1990, and are yet to lift the league trophy in the Premier League era.

Eight different managers tried to end Liverpool's drought but no one ever managed to achieve it. They finished as the runners-up on three occasions, most recently in the 2013-14 season.

Nevertheless, things are looking great for them this season and they are the only strong team in the EPL.

Right on this note, here are the three reasons why Liverpool will win the Premier League this season.

#1 Unstoppable attacking line-up

Mohamed Salah is among the best players in the world
Liverpool have some of the best attackers in the world at their disposal and are capable of running-riot on any defense on their day.

The Reds' front three scored more than 90 goals between them last season, with Mohamed Salah creating a history by becoming the first player to score 32 goals in a 38-game Premier League season.

The three of them started on a brilliant note this season as well, and Salah is currently the joint top-scorer in the Premier League with 17 goals. Sadio Mane[12] and Roberto Firmino[9] goals to their names respectively.

Given the fact that they are all 26-years-old and are in their prime, Klopp will be looking to do better and win his first trophy with the club. The acquisition of Naby Keita adds further creativity to the team. Also, Xherdan Shaqiri and Daniel Sturridge are there as back up options if any of the front three fails to fire..

#2 A much improved defense
 Liverpool conceded the least number of goals in the Premier League this season
Defense was always the biggest weakness of the Reds, and as we've seen in numerous matches over the years, they lost plenty of points in some of the most crucial moments due to needless errors made by their backline.

However, the signing of Virgil van Dijk from Southampton in the last January transfer window proved to be a masterstroke by the club, and the Dutchman transformed Liverpool's shaky defense into the league best in less than a year.

The Merseysiders now boast the best defensive record in the English top division and conceded only six goals in 16 games this season.

Players like Joe Gomez, Trent Alexender Arnold, and Andy Robertson also benefited from the leadership qualities of Van Dijk and performed brilliantly since his arrival. Moreover, the Reds also spent £62 million to sign Alisson Becker as a replacement to their goalkeepers last summer and the Brazillian is doing a great job so far.

#3 Consistency
Liverpool found consistency in their performances this season
The Reds play brilliantly against the top teams ever since Jurgen Klopp arrived at the club, but the encouraging results against the big sides are often immediately followed by disappointments against smaller teams.

The Merseyside Reds don't compete against smaller teams with the same energy, intensity, and resiliency that they do against the big guns. They lost points against all three of the relegated teams last season, which was a major stumbling block for them.
