OPINION

It’s all getting very real now Liverpool fans. The Red’s faithful will be able to cheer on their new players in the upcoming Premier League season, as they take on West Ham on Sunday. The fans are obviously happy with the shirt numbers that have been given, although 13 is classed as an unlucky number by some people, new goalkeeper Alisson will be hoping that it’s a lucky one for him this season. It’s also a big season for the new defensive midfielder Fabinho, who has been given the number three shirt, normally reserved for a full-back, as he will provide competition with the club captain Jordan Henderson. The fans are also excited at the prospect of young striker Rhian Brewster given the number 24 shirt which indicates he may get a bit of time on the Liverpool sub’s bench this season after the sale of Danny Ings to Southampton. The wonderkid has got massive potential and the Anfield faithful can look forward to seeing more of him this season.
