Still, they don’t really have the cover to challenge at the elite yet; Sadio Mane’s injury highlights the flaws in their squad. In that context, finishing in the top four in Jurgen Klopp’s season would be something to celebrate, especially as it would mean doing so at the expense of two out of Arsenal, Manchester City and Manchester United, clubs with stronger finances.
