Liverpool’s 3-1 loss at Manchester City on Monday night brought about plenty of problems for Brendan Rodgers, even after splashing out on two defenders and bringing in a third on loan. Alberto Moreno, Dejan Lovren and Simon Mignolet were all accountable for the three goals conceded.

A major problem at Liverpool has been the lack of quality at defensive midfield. A quality addition for that role will certainly see the club improve on their defensive record of last season.

Brendan Rodgers has less than a week to address the defensive gaps in his squad and ensure Liverpool are capable of building on the season they had last term.

Here’s a look at five players who would help to strengthen the defence at Anfield.

    I have a better idea why don’t we just get Steve Clarke back instead of buying more players!!!!

    It was against City. I’ve not read this BS because we’re finished buying this last week will be used to move players on.

    Must be nothing better for them to write on

    I think that Alex. Song will be a good signing for liverpool. But always like to see another striker and midfielder come into the club which would boost. The team a lot also a defender. From Lowther. Barratt
