Rafa Benitez will have been impressed by one member of the Middlesbrough line-up over the weekend and apparently this has led to speculation that Liverpool are considering making a big-money bid for the England man.
Middlesbrough will resist any offers from Liverpool for winger Stewart Downing.

Downing has started the season with a bang. He followed up a man-of-the-match performance against Spurs with another exciting run-out at Anfield. He was unable to prevent his side from losing in the dying seconds but would have done enough to once again bring him to the forefront of Rafa’s mind. The left winger is now the longest-serving player at the Riverside but he has made comments that seem to suggest that if a move came in from a team who could offer him a higher level of progression then he would consider it. Liverpool are, of course, just such a club. Do Anfield fans think that Rafa should consider bringing him in?
