With the closure of the transfer window yesterday and the international break coming up, football fans will have to wait to see the results of their well spent money. This potentially gives two weeks for new signings to gel with their new teammates and adapt to the playing style of their new team.

On transfer deadline day Liverpool were certainly the calmest of all squads, completing their three deadline day signings before midday.

Liverpool signed two central defenders and one winger, Mamadou Sakho, Tiago Ilori and Victor Moses. The two central defenders arrived for a combined fee of £22 million. The 23-year-old Sakho, already a France international, arrives from Ligue 1 champions Paris St Germain while 20-year-old Ilori joins from Sporting Lisbon.

Sakho told the club's official website: "I'm delighted to be here. I'd like to thank everyone for the welcome.

"I came here because the project that is in place at Liverpool interests me. I'm really looking forward to playing my first game.

"I know the Liverpool fans are fantastic and while I was in France, it was clear for me to see they are amongst the best in England."

Ilori added: "It feels great being a Liverpool player - coming to the Premier League has always been a dream for me."

Liverpool also signed the 22 year old Chelsea winger Victor Moses on a season-long loan, after Jose Mourinho admitted that the Nigerian midfielder was surplus to requirements. Moses told the Anfield club's website: "First and foremost, I'm delighted to have made the loan from Chelsea to a big club like Liverpool.

"The most important thing is for me to be professional about it and I'm here to do a job for the club.

"The target is to get into the top four and for the club to compete in the Champions League - and I'm delighted to be here.

"There are a lot of quality players here - they're winning games and creating chances. It's a massive thing for me to be here."

Things are looking good for Liverpool after a successful summer in the transfer market which has been capped by a brilliant start from the season with the Reds being the only team to hold a 100 percent record.

First of all, Liverpool have been very sensible in the transfer market and have carefully picked out the correct signings. Brendan Rodgers has signed younger players who have a bright future ahead of them, so that they can grow at Liverpool and make them a world class team again.

Not only that but he has bought players in all different areas of the pitch, especially the ones that they were weakest in, or required more cover.

Finally, three games into the season Liverpool are top of the with nine points from nine after a captivating performance against their bitter rivals, Manchester United, last Sunday. As things stand Liverpool look in serious contention for a Champions League spot.
