The second bold prediction I made at the start of the season was that Liverpool—even without Suarez in their lineup—are still very capable of making the Top Four this season. And after watching their attacking creativity this week, that prediction doesn't necessarily seem as far off as first thought.
Liverpool's attack is clearly going to be very fluid and dynamic this season, and if Brendan Rodgers can figure out the best starting side out of the slew of options available to him, this team is certainly capable of being a very tough opponent to some of the Premier League's more fancied teams.
Assuming they keep Suarez this summer, the Reds' attack will only get stronger than it was today, with their mountain of potential goalscoring chances more likely to finish in the back of the net.
Their defense has always been relatively solid—especially at home—thanks to their high possession percentage and could very well lead them to success in 2013. After all, even without all of their signings, they still created more goalscoring opportunities than any other team in Europe.
Imagine what they could do with their new additions, then, this year.
Definitely worth watching out for.
