With the summer transfer window now done and dusted, managers and players alike know where they stand until January.
Liverpool were one of the busiest sides in the transfer window as manager Brendan Rodgers sought to overhaul his squad following a disappointing 2014/15 campaign at Anfield.
With those arrivals taking precedence, several of those signed last summer with the money from Luis Suarez’s sale now face uncertain futures.
We decided to take a look at four Liverpool players who will have to up their game to be first-team regulars this season and beyond.
Signed from Sevilla last summer, Moreno was a purchase the club had high hopes for after impressing in Spain. However, he struggled with the pace of the Premier League during his first season in England and will have to battle to get back in.
He has found himself demoted to second choice this season, with Brendan Rodgers choosing youngster Joe Gomez to start at left-back. With the former Charlton man impressing as well, the Spaniard may struggle to regain his place.
The Brazilian has always been a bit-part player under Rodgers and was reportedly close to leaving Anfield this summer - with the midfielder admitting as much to the club's official website.
With James Milner coming in this summer and demanding a central role, as well as Jordan Henderson, Joe Allen and Emre Can all competing for roles in central midfield, it’s hard to see where Lucas can fit in.
One of the big money signings from Southampton last summer, Lallana can consider himself unfortunate to have fallen down the pecking order.
A series of niggling injuries meant he could never truly pick up a head of steam in his first season. Philippe Coutinho became the star number 10 in that time, and with Roberto Firmino joining for big money this summer, it’s easy to imagine Lallana will find himself on the bench more often than not.
After impressing at the World Cup, Origi hardly set the world alight in Ligue 1 last season, and finds himself some way down the pecking order at Anfield.
With Christian Benteke likely to be first choice, Daniel Sturridge to come back and compete, and Danny Ings also an option, it was surprising not to see the young Belgian head out on loan again this season as he is unlikely to see regular game time in the Premier League.
