How Liverpool’s Starting XI Could Look In 2014/15 With New £59m Signings And No Luis Suarez

Posted by

The Reds will take on a new look next term.

It’s been a busy summer of transfer business so far for Liverpool, with four new additions and the high profile sale of Luis Suarez to FC Barcelona.

The new faces are made up by Southampton duo Rickie Lambert and Adam Lallana, Emre Can of Bayer Leverkusen and Benfica’s Lazar Markovic, arriving for a combined fee of £59m.

Manager Brendan Rodgers is also in the market for a new left-back and possibly a central defender and another striker, with Sevilla’s Alberto Moreno reported by the Daily Express as an expected new arrival.

So here is what the Reds starting XI could look like in 2014/15.

GK – Simon Mignolet

Arrived from Sunderland in a £9m deal last summer and despite a promising start saw his form drop as the season went on and the Belgian still has much to prove between the sticks.

RB – Glen Johnson

Having failed to impress with England at the 2014 World Cup and often with his club, Johnson will need to stay sharp or will see himself being replaced by fine youngster Jon Flanagan.

CB – Martin Skrtel

The only centre-back who consistently remained in Rodgers’ team last term, Skrtel was guilty of lacking concentration at times and will need to improve on that this time around.

CB – Mamadou Sakho

Signed from Paris Saint-Germain 12 months ago for £18m, the France international lacked consistency, but showed enough to suggest he could be a top-class centre-back in the near future.

Alberto Moreno Sevilla

LB – Alberto Moreno

With Jose Enrique injured for much of the last campaign and Aly Cissokho failing to impress during a loan spell from Valencia, a new left-back remains a priority and this young Spaniard remains the preferred choice.
