Roll on, Sunday! A new season is upon us, and we here at The Liverpool Offside enjoy the yearly ritual of embarrassing ourselves by making predictions about the season that are invariably proven false come May. Last year, the might of Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City side was enough that most of the TLO staff and plenty of the commenters correctly chose them to take home the glory.

This year we’re trying something different. At the end of this post, not only will you get to make your predictions, but we’re going use the ranker to try and crowdsource the final season standings. Let’s see how close we can get.

But first, here’s what the TLO staff think about this year.
