Revealed - Where Liverpool fans want Rodgers to strengthen this January

Brendan Rodgers 2

Liverpool fans have had their say on where they want to see Brendan Rodgers strengthen the side this winter.

Liverpool have made a superb start to the Premier League season and despite that recent loss at Arsenal, Brendan Rodgers’ men find themselves just two points behind the league leaders heading into a busy Christmas period.

Liverpool were superb last summer, backing Rodgers to make the signings he felt would improve the overall quality of the squad and he got things right in several areas such as the quality which no exists through the middle of the team’s defence.

However, things aren’t done and dusted and the boss has admitted that he’ll be looking to make further additions to the side this winter, as Liverpool tool up for a strong push over the second half of the season.

The club’s fans have had their say via a poll on lfcpolls.com and the number one position they would like to see improved is central midfield, with a holding player coming in to protect the back four.

Lucas has done a superb job in that position so far this season but a holding midfielder would release him to go and play in a central midfield role, which creates obvious knock on effects with the likes of Steven Gerrard and Jordan Henderson released to fill in across other positions.

Here are the poll results.

Central Defensive Midfield – 59.84%

Attacking Midfield – 19.67%

Left-Back – 14.75%

Right-Back – 5.74%
