Genuine top 4 challengers?
Before the season started, I even doubted that Liverpool would finish above Swansea and Everton, let alone compete for champions league qualification. After the end of the transfer window and a great start to the season, I'm thinking that this side is a lot better than I initially thought. After having a real long and hard look at the top 5 teams, I can see a lot of weaknesses and some space for Liverpool to fill in. Liverpool now have great depth in defence and attack. Once Suarez is back, they'll have to of the best strikers in the league, one who's comfortable on the wing aswell. Any injury to a midfield player, however, is a potential deal breaker for Liverpools top 4 aspirations, with 4 cm's covering 3 spots for an entire season.
The three advantages I see for Liverpool: Unlike most of the other top 6 clubs, they have two strikers of the upper shelf in the PL, they have no European distractions and they have a complete and modern manager.
