Liverpool failed to secure a victory in Switzerland after FC Sion held them to a 0-0 draw last night, but the Reds will be in Monday's Europa League draw for the Round of 32. 

In fact, Jurgen Klopp and Co. could be drawn against Borussia Dortmund, who finished second in their group. 

There's no doubt about it, Dortmund wouldn't be a favourable draw for Liverpool; Thomas Tuchel's side have been flying in the Bundesliga and are one of the favourites to secure the European trophy this season.

But, Klopp, who departed the German outfit at the end of the last campaign, has insisted that he would be more than happy to take on his former side in 2016. 

In fact, when told that a match with Dortmund could be on the horizon, the charismatic coach claimed that it wouldn't be a problem. It must be noted, however, that the Liverpool boss looked slightly surprised by the revelation...

Exciting Liverpool

Under the Klopp regime, Liverpool will no doubt prove an unpredictable yet exciting force both domestically and in Europe. The Reds certainly shouldn't be underestimated, however; they have the credentials to make a real impact in the Premier League sooner rather than later. 

With Klopp in charge, there's no reason why they won't be able to maintain a title challenge. The likes of Philippe Coutinho, Adam Lallana and Co. should come to prominence over the next couple of months. 

Liverpool have a good set of fixtures coming up over the festive period, too; clashes against West Brom, Watford, Leicester City, Sunderland and West Ham United are all games the Reds should be winning. High-flying Leicester may well fancy their chances, but it won't be easy for them to secure a result at Anfield. It's a huge month for Liverpool in their pursuit of winning the title.
