Liverpool’s hopes of mounting a serious title challenge in the 2015-16 campaign were pretty slim anyway.
After all, the Reds ended the 2014-15 season sixth in the Premier League, 25 points below champions Chelsea.
If Liverpool do manage to cause a shock by challenging for the title, their main rivals are likely to be Chelsea, Manchester City, Arsenal and Manchester United.
All five of the above mentioned clubs made plans to travel the world in between the end of last season and the start of next.
This is a necessity in today’s global game – to make the most of commercial opportunities.
However, all those air miles can lead to fatigue, which could be deadly later in the season.
