Since the 18thseason of Premier League is starting this weekend, we thought we would introduce some of the biggest teams in our new ‘Team of the week’. First up is Liverpool FC.
The club from the banks of Merseyside is one of the most successful football clubs in Great Britain. With their 18 league wins and 5 European cups, the Reds have since 1892 won everything there is to win in the football world, except the premiership.. Could this be Liverpool’s year?
Today Liverpool FC is led by their captain Steven Gerrard. The twenty-nine-year-old has been in the club since he was eight and got his debut as far back as in 1998. Since then, Steven has scored over 100 goals for the club and is playing along Fernando Torres up front.
This season the club has bought English international Glen Johnson and skilled midfielder Alberto Aquilani. Johnson has been hailed as the next great English full-back for a long time, but has yet to live up to his full potential, although making the premiership ‘team of the year’ last season. Liverpool needs both of these big signings at the top of their game to replace Alvaro Arbeloa and fan-favorite Xabi Alonso, both sold to Real Madrid this summer.
Liverpool FC opens the season away at White Heart Lane against Tottenham Hotspurs this Sunday.
