STAR MAN: LUIS SUAREZ

What an absolutely massive season for Suarez – he owes Reds fans after last season’s dramas and he knows it’s time for him to deliver the goals to guarantee European football

NEW HIT: FABIO BORINI

Boss Brendan Rodgers has promised fans that Borini will get goals, but it’s his defender-hustling that will cause most havoc – he’ll be the perfect partner for Suarez

OUT: Alberto Aquilani (Fiorentina, £7m), Dirk Kuyt (Fenerbahce, £1m), Fabio Aurelio (Gremio, free), David Amoo (Preston North End, free), Stephen Darby (Bradford, free), Maxi Rodriguez (Newell's Old Boys, free)
