Jurgen Klopp has submitted his Liverpool squad for the 2016/17 Premier League season.

Following a summer where he splashed £68 million on new signings and received the very same through players sold, the German has decided on who he wishes to use heading forward.

And if truth be told, it was an excellent window for Klopp.

Not only did he lure Sadio Mane and Georginio Wijnaldum for a combined £60 million, but he also managed to recoup most of the £32.5 million spent on Christian Benteke in 2014 by selling him to Crystal Palace.

What's most interesting about Klopp's squad is that of the 22 players he has picked, Mamadou Sakho has been included.

This follows on from rumours, per the Mirror, that Liverpool's manager had every intention of freezing out the France international after his misdemeanours on the club's tour of America.

So, is this a side capable of finishing in the top four?

Upon initial inspection you would say yes but, having beaten Arsenal 4-3 at the Emirates Stadium and then lost 2-0 to Burnley a week later, it seems inconsistency could once again prove an issue for the Reds.

The simple fact of the matter is that Klopp's men must deliver on a regular basis if they're to secure a high finish and realise their vast potential.
