Liverpool return to Premier League action with a trip to rock bottom Queens Park Rangers on Sunday.
The Reds have endured a disappointing start to the season, with four defeats in all competitions already, including three in the Premier League.
They currently trail leaders Chelsea by a massive nine points and any repeat of the thrilling title challenge of last season looks to have already disappeared.
Brendan Rodgers continues to insist his team will improve as the season progresses with a host of summer signings taking their time to settle.
Mario Balotelli is the man who has caught the most attention so far, with the Italian firing just once in his opening seven matches as a Liverpool player.
Brendan Rodgers referring to the Italian as a ‘calculated risk’ has got some suggesting the 24-year-old summer signing was little more than a panic buy.
But with the Reds history of panic buys, Balotelli has some way to fall before being put in and amongst the group of players we have identified here.
