First we have Napoli of Italy. This team has not had the success the fans have hoped for the last couple of years, but this year could be different. They have one of the most loyal and supportive team rosters of the Serie A. They have Mertens and Hamsik, even though I think these players should be playing for bigger clubs they seem satisfied with Napoli. Mertens is a crafty forward and winger who has scored and assisted many teams over the last couple of years. While Hamsik is a game changer and can set the pace of the match in the midfield. He was one of the most outstanding performers in the Euro 2016. I thought for sure he had earned himself a move. Napoli also has a upcoming young back line who can surprise a few. Overall I can see this team pushing for Champions League Football.
Second we have Liverpool of England. So far over the last few years, it has been an uphill battler for their boss Jurgen Klopp. Liverpool have been an average favorite at best in the premier league. Mohammed Salah’s brilliant performances last year helped lead them to the champions league finals last season. Liverpool have made key signings this summer to ensure they can win the premier league. They added Naby Keita a key performer in the midfield and Fabinho a really good and balance defensive midfielder. the best signing of all was Alisson the new goalkeeper. He is sharp and seems to have great vision. I think Liverpool will win the premier league this upcoming year if they stay sharp.
