Luis Suarez last season

Suarez was at the heart of the Liverpool team that mounted a surprise Premier League title challenge last season.

Despite being banned for the first five games of the Premier League season, Suarez won the Premier League Golden Boot. He scored 31 goals in 33 appearances for Liverpool and was at the centre of a fast paced and creative team.

Suarez departs

Despite him saying the opposite at the start of the summer, Suarez has now moved on from Liverpool.

He has now joined the likes of Lionel Messi and Neymar at Catalan club Barcelona for £75 million. This leaves a sizeable gap in the Liverpool team as his departure means the departure of the spearhead of the Red’s attack.

Life after Suarez

Liverpool are yet to find a replacement for the Uruguayan, with the likes of Radamel Falcao and Edinson Cavani being linked with the Merseyside club during this transfer window.

The Manchester City game this weekend will be the chance for Liverpool to prove they can still be a top four side without Suarez.

The win against Southampton showed that they are capable of winning tight games without the Uruguayan, however the Manchester City game will be a tougher test.

If Liverpool play well and win the game against the reigning Premier League champions, it will help them prove that the future is bright despite Suarez’s departure and they can be a top four side once again.
