Since the start of the year, Liverpool FC have splashed out over £100 million on players, with Andy Carroll and Luis Suarez being followed to Anfield by Jordan Henderson, Stewart Downing and Charlie Adam.

This new-look attacking department will be on show when the Reds take on Sunderland on 13 August, especially now that Steven Gerrard has been ruled out for a month and Kenny Daglish certainly feels that the purchases made by the club have been sensible.

“It’s been very impressive that they (Liverpool’s owners) haven’t flinched with the players that we have asked for and they have provided the money,” Dalglish said. “The most important thing for us was getting people in and we’ve brought good people in.

“We’ve acted responsibly in the transfer market and we’ve also acted responsibly and respectfully with the owners, who have been fantastically supportive financially during the window. If there is a better owner that is as supportive as John Henry, then they have done very well for themselves because he’s fantastically supportive.”

Indeed, Liverpool were able to sign Suarez and Carroll for roughly the same amount received by Chelsea for Fernando Torres, while it is also possible that José Enrique will sign from Newcastle United in the next week.
