Starting their Premier League season in perfect style courtesy of a late 1-0 victory away at a tough venue in Stoke City last weekend, our Reds contingent here in the Football Transfer Tavern are absolutely delighted.
Not the easiest game to watch on the eye, our Kopites don’t care how the victory came having watched all of Arsenal, Chelsea and Tottenham drop points on the opening weekend.
When you cast your mind back to the Liverpool team that lost 6-1 to the Potters on the final day of last season, a hell of a lot of change has occurred since then with the Reds swooping to sign a plethora of new players in an attempt to break back into the Premier League’s top four.
One of those men was Christian Benteke and although he didn’t score on his professional debut for the Reds, many Liverpool supporters are expecting him to step up when required this term.
With Liverpool having been busier than most this summer, you’d imagine that they’re now close to completing their summer transfer business with potentially just one more signing arriving before the close of the window on September 1st.
With Jose Enrique having been banished from first team training alongside Mario Balotelli and Fabio Borini, the Reds may potentially require a back-up to Alberto Moreno at left back but aside from that, the Reds’ bench looked strong at the weekend and strength in depth is something all Liverpool fans are happy about.
Today, we’ve devised an eleven made up of some of the Reds’ summer transfer targets that they either failed to acquire or are still being linked with.
