Liverpool completed the signing of former Manchester City forward Mario Balotelli from AC Milan to further reinforce their attack.
The merseysiders were beaten by the champions last night as the new signing watched from the stands.
Reds still have problems at the back but without doubt they missed someone like Luis Suarez against the citizens.
A direct replacement for the Uruguayan was not really going to be possible but it will be fair to say that the Italian is the man to take his place and has all the talent to be brilliant for Liverpool.
Reds required needed depth and quality upfront and Balotelli completes the set. Brendan Rodgers used the diamond formation with SAS to magnificent effect last season and will hope that Mario and Daniel can form that strong a partnership as well.
Expect BR to use the diamond formation with two forwards upfront when both are fit.
Here is how Liverpool will line up with Mario Balotelli.
