Liverpool suffered a major blow at the weekend, losing to bitter rivals Manchester United and dropping five points outside of the top four in the process.
The red card given to Steven Gerrard 38 seconds after coming on as a half time substitute compounded what was a miserable afternoon for Brendan Rodgers side, who prior to the game were the only unbeaten side in the Premier League in 2015.
The Reds had been on a superb run of 13 matches unbeaten, and looked a decent bet to finish in those Champions League places following a dismal start to the season.
Brendan Rodgers and his side now face an uphill battle, knowing defeat in their next game against Arsenal at the Emirates could see the gap widened to eight points.
Success in the FA Cup is still a possibility, but Rodgers will certainly look to add to a squad in the summer that suffered massively during the first half of the season – particularly in the absence of Daniel Sturridge.
Manchester United flop Radamel Falcao is a top target according to widespread reports, and here we have identified another five players who could follow the Colombian to Anfield in the summer.
