To say that Liverpool have experienced a dour start to the new campaign would be something of an understatement and following on from this, Brendan Rodgers has revealed that he is desperate to strengthen his squad as soon as possible.
Even though there was a great euphoria following Rodgers’ appointment in the summer, the Reds have started this campaign in an identical way to how they finished last season.
They currently sit in 14th place in the table and having accumulated just six points from seven games, it’s no surprise to see many supporters very concerned. Moreover, the form at Anfield makes for even tougher reading, with the club still without a Premier League win at home.
Following on from the above, Rodgers has revealed that he is looking to add new face to the squad in January. Speaking to the media he said, “There are still areas we want to reinforce – and we have to reinforce as soon as we can. Our best team are comparable to any team in the Premier League. But we’re a very thin squad and we are having to challenge on a lot of fronts. I’ve had good conversations with the owners and they understand where we are at as a team.”
Of course, following such a disappointing transfer window, supporters will be hoping that Rodgers is able to at least pull off a couple of deals in January. Out of these potential moves, a move for a new striker is surely top of the agenda with the club experiencing some huge problems in this area through the opening couple of months. Other than Luis Suarez, other players have struggled in front of goal and this has been particularly disappointing considering the decision to let Andy Carroll depart on loan for West Ham.
