Jurgen Klopp has failed to finish inside the Premier League top four just twice since taking charge at Liverpool: in his first ever season at Anfield and in the previous, 2022/23 season. But most shocking wasn’t the 5th-place finish or the failure in other competitions, but rather the poor level of football Liverpool showed throughout the year, as their intensity and pressing was gone.

Going into the new season, the German coach should aim at silverware or he may be at risk of sacking, although the Liverpool trophy odds do not look too encouraging.

List of Liverpool Trophy Odds

Considering the club’s stature, it is not surprising to see Europa League sit atop of the Liverpool trophy betting odds. In the domestic tournaments, however, Klopps’ Reds are not the top favourites.

Premier League

Liverpool are one of the most successful teams in the history of the English championship, having won the title on 19 occasions. However, the Reds had been on a 30-year title drought before Jurgen Klopp brought the title back to Anfield in 2019/20. In 2021/22, Liverpool came close to clinching the Premier League title again but Man City surpassed them by just one point.

Can Liverpool make another title run this season? As long as their starting centre-backs stay fit during the seasons and new midfield additions Alexis Mac Allister and Dominik Szoboszlai integrate well into the team, their chances do not look slim.

Nevertheless, the Reds are only the third favourites for the title, behind Man City and Arsenal. But their odds – 1.47 on Paddy Power, 1.53 on Super Sports Bet – of finishing inside the top four are really promising.

Europa League

The 2023/24 season marks Liverpool’s return to Europa League for the first time in eight years, and it will be the second time that Klopp leads the Reds in the competition after losing the 2015/16 final to Sevilla. The team has been rather successful on the European stage under the 56-year-old coach, as they went on to reach the Champions League final three times, winning the competition in 2019 and losing to Real Madrid in 2018 and 2022. 

Europa League, at least in terms of rivals, should be an easier task for the Merseyside club. Certainly, the tournament will also include last term's finalists AS Roma, 2022 winners Villarreal and other solid sides. However, Klopp has defeated stronger opponents in his career, and with a win in the competition, the coach would secure a place in the next season’s Champions League without having to worry about the domestic league.

As far as Europa League success goes, Liverpool has won three such titles, the last one coming in 2000/01. Perhaps it is time the trophy returned to Anfield.

FA Cup

With 15 final appearances and eight total wins, Liverpool is one of the most successful clubs in the FA Cup. Their last triumph dates back to 2020/21, when the Reds defeated Chelsea on penalties following a goalless draw. It was the first FA Cup title won under Klopp.

Last season, Liverpool exited the tournament in the Fourth Round. With many players still recovering their form after the 2022 World Cup, Klopp’s side got outclassed by a physically and tactically superior Brighton side, losing 1-2.

To be able to compete in the cup tournaments, though, you need a longer squad, and that is not necessarily the case at Anfield. While Liverpool did sign Mac Allister and Szoboszlai this summer, they also lost the likes of Fabinho, James Milner, Jordan Henderson, Roberto Firmino, Naby Keita and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain. So far, there’ve been way more outs than ins.

English League Cup

Just like the FA Cup, Liverpool have won just one English League Cup under Klopp, with the trophy coming in the 2020/21 season. Historically speaking, though, the Reds are more successful in this tournament with nine total wins, the best record in the country.

Liverpool did not make it far into the competition last term. The Merseyside team eliminated second-tier Derby County in the third round, but only on penalties. In the fourth round, Klopp’s men lost 2-3 to Manchester City away. It was the team's first game after the 2022 World Cup break and the coach could not count on certain regular starters. However, Man City were in the same situation and they ended up dominating Liverpool on the pitch despite the deceptive score.

This year around, Klopp will have to manage the team’s physical state better and hope for fewer injuries if Liverpool is to stand a chance in the English League Cup.

No Trophies

Despite the positive signs shown by the team during pre-season, the Liverpool trophy odds ahead of 2023/24 are not the highest. In fact, Paddy Power believe that the Reds are more likely to finish the season trophyless (1.60 odds) than to win any of the competitions named (2.20 odds).

Klopp has gone trophyless with Liverpool more than once but – except for his first season in charge – the team was at least playing great, competitive football. However, good football without any tangible result may become senseless in the end. The German coach has a contract with the club until 2026, and at least some trophy this season would serve as an argument in favour of him completing said contract. 

A high finish in the Premier League coupled with at least some trophy would be considered sufficient at Anfield. Otherwise, we may see the club decide to change course.
