“It’s going to be difficult for Liverpool because there’s expectations on them now, they nearly won the quadruple and had an excellent season last year,” he added. “They were 10 minutes from winning the Premier League and faced a fantastic goalkeeper against Real Madrid in the Champions League final that won the game.
“With two trophies, there’s that expectation and pressure on Liverpool to do well. And I think they’ve got that squad to do it. These players know what to expect and they’re getting better, they’ve got a great squad. The demands are going to be so high this year, hopefully they can deliver.”
Head-to-head virtual trading platform, SportsBroker, surveyed Liverpool fans to find out their sides’ ‘Most Memorable Premier League Opening Day Moment.’*

Gerrard’s superb strike received 42% of the vote. In second place was Jurgen Klopp piggy-backing Sadio Mane after his debut wondergoal vs Arsenal in 2016 (24%) and it was the 6-1 thrashing of Crystal Palace in 1994 that came third in the table of Liverpool’s most memorable opening day moments – a game where Ian Rush bagged a brace (4%).
