With the season well underway and the transfer window soon to reopen we thought it would be a good time to rate how our main summer signings have done so far...
Collectively Liverpool have experienced an up-and-down season to date; erratic league results, out of the League Cup but through to the Europa League knock-out stages.
The club currently sits firmly in mid-table, 10th at the time of writing, but in a closely congested league a couple of wins could easily elevate Brendan Rodgers' side onto the coattails of the top four.
Individually there have been some standout performers such as Luis Suarez, Glen Johnson and more recently Jose Enrique but how have the club's newest acquisitions faired?
The following is our take on the performances of the main summer signings so far. Let us know if you agree or disagree in the comments section below...
Signed from: Roma
LFC appearances: 11
The Italian was Brendan Rodgers' first signing after the 39-year-old took charge at Anfield during the summer. After working previously with the player at both Swansea City and Chelsea, the signing of Borini was a fairly predictable swoop by Rodgers although it was somewhat surprising to see Roma let him depart. Unfortunately his career on Merseyside is yet to take off and the full international has spent the past two months on the sidelines with a broken foot. During the game time he has seen, Borini looks a decent player with a lot of potential but it is difficult to assess exactly where he will fit into the team. Although a striker by trade he does not seem a natural goalscorer and instead Borini has often been played out wide but there he seemingly lacks the skill or pace to regularly trouble oppositions. One for the future certainly but given our lack or attacking resources and the price paid he would have been expected to contribute more heavily straight away.
