Brendan Rodgers spent heavily on new signings this summer to make up for the departure of Luis Suarez to Barcelona, which also handed the Reds boss plenty of cash to spend in the transfer market.
In an attempt to almost rebuild his entire squad, Rodgers signed several expensive flops that now look to be big mistakes after the club endures a nightmare start to the season.
Liverpool were disappointing again as they could only manage a point against the Bulgarian minnows, being pegged back late on despite taking a 2-1 lead.
All the while, the players dropped to the bench cost a whopping £88m combined, with these seven players failing to start the game this midweek:
1) Dejan Lovren (£20m)
