.

After signing seven players during the summer transfer window, Liverpool supporters are supremely confident the club can return to the top four in the Barclays Premier League, according to an online poll conducted by GiveMeFootball.

Kenny Dalglish spent over £50 million in the January transfer window, signing Andy Carroll and Luis Suarez, but the Scot, who earned a permanent deal with the club in May, went to work on his squad this summer as well, with 16 players coming and going at Anfield.

And it seems that money talks, with over 90 recent of people polled believing the club can improve on last season's finish of sixth, and qualify for the Champions League once again.

Two wins from three games, including their first win away at Arsenal for 11 years has gone to further raise expectations on Merseyside, so much so that nearly 35 percent of those surveyed believe the club can win the title this season.

 

While the signings of the likes of Alexander Doni and Jose Enrique are unlikely to excite the fans, the impact of the likes of Charlie Adam, who opened his Reds account against Bolton Wanderers, and Stewart Downing gives supporters reason to believe Dalglish has spent the money handed to him wisely.

Combined with Suarez, who stared in the Copa America this summer with a victorious Uruguay, the ever reliable Dirk Kuyt and the still to return Steven Gerrard, going forward Liverpool look as fearsome as they've ever been in the Barclays Premier League era.

In defence, last season's ever present Martin Skrtel is joined by new signing Sebastian Coates, as the loses of the likes of Raul Meireles and David N'Gog pale into insignificance.

Liverpool fans finishing predicitions:
 


Such has been the impressive nature of the club's spending, coupled with an unbeaten start to the season, only 7.9 percent of people are predicting the club to finish anywhere outside the top four this season.
