Yesterday, Liverpool looked how fans thought they would under Brendan Rodgers.
The team moved the ball patiently, and were able to find a balance between the killer pass and ball retention.
The midfield will be boosted by the addition of Nuri Sahin, the defence gets Agger back and Coates as a backup.
The strike force will include either Suarez and Carroll or a new player.
The wingers finally look like a handful, especially Sterling.
The team has a new anchor in Joe Allen, and three more in Gerrard, Sahin and Lucas.
Simply put, Liverpool look like a top quality side.
I believe the Reds can make it into the top four. Call it unrealistic optimism on the back of one positive performance, but I genuinely believe Liverpool can beat Arsenal, Tottenham, Everton and Newcastle to fourth.
