If you follow me on Twitter or have red any of my previous articles you will know that I do criticise Liverpool a lot however in the past few weeks, I can't fault their performances. In the Premier League and the Europa League their performances have improved massively and are looking such a bigger threat and not this season, but next season they could press for a place in the top five of the league.
Liverpool have been excellent in recent weeks with the players becoming more use to the 4-2-3-1 system which Brendan Rodgers brought with him in the summer when he arrived at Anfield. Watching Liverpool you can see that the system is starting to fall in place as they have been the dominant force in there last few games with more possession, shots on goal but what they are lacking is goals.
Despite Luis Suarez being in terrific goal scoring form this season with 8 goals in the Premier League and also involved in 10 of Liverpool's 14 goals this season another striker is definitely needed to add more quality and goals to the side. Before Rodgers took charge of Liverpool I criticised Suarez a lot for his all round game play as he tries to do too much across the front line which means no one is there to score the goals. With the 3 up front system it gives the opportunity for Suarez to interchange with his colleagues in the final third and he is still getting the goals and being involved a lot in the game.
Suarez may be in on the goals this season but a striker is needed. With Liverpool finding their feet with this new formation I believe Luis Suarez could fill some of the roles in the formation better than the central striker role. The roles in this formation in which Suarez can shine is the No.10 role and even either of the wide positions supporting the striker. With I would like to see Suarez in one of the wider positions and with him in this role there is a place for a central striker. This striker could be Fabio Borini however I don't think the Italian is good enough to lead the line however another player linked to the club is striker Klaas Jan Huntelaar.
We have all seen recently the improvement on the pitch however it is up to the powers that be at the club to give Rodgers significant money in the next two transfer windows to get the players needed to build a bigger squad which can be rotated in different competitions but still maintain the high quality. Rodgers has brought through a number of different youth players to the squad and it has been a success with Andre Wisdom, Suso and Raheem Sterling being the most recognisable names breaking into the first team. Despite these players breaking through to the first team along with others expected to break through as well in the future the board needs to show trust in the project Brendan Rodgers is working on to get the players he needs in the transfer windows.
