  • Liverpool odds-on to finish outside the top four for only the second time in nine seasons
  • Reds are 8/13 to go trophyless in 2024/25

Liverpool Odds-On to Finish Outside the Top Four in 2024/25

If Liverpool manage to secure their new primary target, there are few better suited to the way they currently play than Arne Slot.

However, his ultra-aggressive high-pressing style may not be enough to ride the wave of scrutiny he will likely receive, should he be named manager.

A season of turbulence is predicted by our traders, who expect Slot, the players and the fanbase alike to endure a settling-in period.

With Klopp already thought to be overachieving with his current cohort, and competition for Champions League places now stronger than ever, Liverpool are 8/11 to finish outside the top four.

A Trophyless Season Beckons Post-Klopp

Arne Slot masterminded Feyenoord’s first major piece of silverware in six seasons last year, before adding another to the cabinet this term with the Dutch Cup.

He has also enjoyed relative success in Europe, leading the team to the Europe Conference League final in the tournament’s inaugural season.

His resumé is no doubt impressive, but he has never managed outside of his native Netherlands, nor has the kind of elite level experience that Jurgen Klopp had prior to his arrival.

As recent history has shown at Manchester United and Arsenal, the departure of a long-standing manager usually triggers a period of familiarisation – typically absent of silverware.

Our traders expect this to be the case if Slot does take over next season, with the Reds 8/13 to go trophyless.

Mohamed Salah to Follow Jurgen Klopp Out of Liverpool?

Mohamed Salah’s contract is set to expire next summer, but the 31-year-old could head for the exit earlier than expected. 

He has previously said that Klopp’s departure won’t interfere with his own future, but his hand may be forced if Slot decides to take the team in a new direction.

Liverpool will either need to tie him down to fresh terms, sell him on for a worthwhile fee, or risk losing their prized asset for nothing next summer.

Saudi Arabia’s well-documented interest has shown little signs of disappearing, and another lucrative offer could turn Liverpool’s head.

He, along with Joel Matip, are both odds-on to leave the club at the end of the season.
