Liverpool’s shaky 2-1 opening weekend victory over Southampton was completely undone by their 3-1 loss to Premier League champions Manchester City on Sunday.

Despite spending over £100m on players this summer, many have been underwhelmed by the calibre of players Brendan Rodgers has brought in to the club. That was until Mario Balotelli arrived in a £16m deal from AC Milan.

That should go some way to ensuring Liverpool are just as impressive this season as they were last. It was also an impressively cheap transfer fee that got him to Anfield – just as impressive as TrustFord’s new Signing on Fee offer, which gives you £500 off the purchase of any new Ford car.

Last year, Liverpool’s bumpy title bid ride was hampered by their leaking defence, so Rodgers will need to address that quickly between now and Monday’s transfer window deadline.
