Liverpool will finish above Manchester United this season.
I'm confident this will happen, even without Suarez - I think Sturridge, Sterling and Coutinho are going to be amazing this year and our attacking football will still blow many teams away, especially at Anfield. Add to this the new signings and much more squad depth and there is much reason to be optimistic. Many people will lazily say "Liverpool will drop off this season, United will displace them in the top 4", "Liverpool will struggle to cope with the CL with their small squad" and "United don't have europe so they'll definitely do well because that always happens - in fact, it's the only reason Liverpool did well last season" and it's really annoying me. We won't struggle with the extra games because we have the extra players this season. Also I don't think having no midweek games is necessarily an advantage - last season we had a good first XI but no one decent on the bench, and when we did need the other players they were not only not very good but also not match sharp. This season we will have more options and they'll all get more game time so they'll make a bigger impact when called upon. I really think Liverpool will surprise a few this season, many are lazily writing them off.
