Merseyside giants Liverpool experienced a glorious start to their latest Premier League campaign. Holding such a lofy position near the top of the table allowed Liverpool fans to dream. However, the past couple of weeks will have brought the hopes of those in Red back to earth.
However, Liverpool's current situation isn't one without a solution. Manager Brendan Rodgers has the chance to turn the hopes of the Reds faithful around once again this season.
Liverpool are lacking in front of goal. Given that they can boast arguably the strongest striking partnership in England in Daniel Sturridge and Luis Suarez and a midfield that contains the captain of England in Steven Gerrard, you would expect that Liverpool would be getting the ball in the net on a regular basis.
However, Liverpool's offence has been below par lately. While chances have been created, different obstacles have stood in the way of their success.
Possibly the strongest addition to Liverpool's side will be the official re-introduction of Philippe Coutinho, who is expected to make his return this weekend. Coutinho's pace and footwork has not been rivalled this season and so having him back on the pitch at Anfield will surely raise the spirits of the Reds' supporters.
In addition, Liverpool need to focus on possession. While they have imported the right players to play the passing game, it seems to be a sin at Anfield, as the Merseyside outfit have rarely kept control of the ball. The idea behind this is simple - the squad is one that can compete at a high level if they can just keep solid possession of the ball.
If Liverpool can maintain possession and make use of the pace and footwork of their young Brazilian midfielder, then they should stand a strong chance in the Premier League this season.
