Liverpool manager Kenny Dalglish has admitted that the club is under great pressure to perform as swathes of talent arrives at Anfield, but the Reds boss added that it was an exciting time as the new boys lift the spirits of the dressing room.

Afterall, Dalglish said, despite the intense spotlight, players will be judged according to how well they perform.

“Everybody's under the the spotlight," explained the Liverpool boss. "It's just the excitement that comes when you bring in new people.

“It helps lift the dressing room and the supporters, but you can't hide behind the new ones that have come in.

“So there will be a spotlight that has been here a while as well, to improve on what we've been doing.

“It's the same every year. I think it's a wee bit different when you're involved in a football club but if you're a supporter you're always anticipating and hoping for the best, and we're no different."

Dalglish was given a mega-budget by the Liverpool owners, and his transfer activity has been watched closely by fans. As the latest signing - left-back Jose Enrique swoops into Anfield - the 60-year-old manager said he was delighted with his new signings, and will disregard tittle-tattle surrounding their performances.


"I can't stop people making comparisons but they're not going to be judged against anybody else," he added.

"They're going to be judged against their performances, and that'll be it.

"Whatever the comparisons are from other people, it's something they enjoy discussing in the pubs. Let them have their discussion.”

The first Barclays Premier League test for Liverpool's new signings will take place against Sunderland on August 13.
