Out of the top four in the Premier League, Liverpool have arguably had the best summer transfer window.
Jurgen Klopp has brought in four new faces, all in areas that needed strengthening.
Fabinho and Naby Keita have joined from Monaco and RB Leipzig respectively to bolster the midfield.
Xherdan Shaqiri has made the team’s attacking element even stronger, while Alisson has arrived at Anfield as the most expensive goalkeeper in the world.
The defence has been a problem area in the Liverpool setup for some time, but with Alisson now between the sticks and Virgil van Dijk commanding at the back, the Reds are expected to be in much better shape this season.

There is a sense, though, that Van Dijk needs a better centre-back partner, with Dejan Lovren, Joel Matip and Ragnar Klavan not always up to scratch.
After demolishing Napoli 5-0 in a pre-season friendly on Saturday, a photo emerged on Reddit of Klopp and Sadio Mane talking to Kalidou Koulibaly.
The Napoli defender, who is valued at £54m by Transfermarkt, has been linked to the Premier League before but has so far not been lured away.
Some Liverpool fans joked on Reddit that Klopp was trying to persuade him to join his defence at Anfield, while others simply expressed their desire for the club to sign the Senegal international.
