One of Brendan Rodgers' first moves after arriving as Liverpool's new manager this summer was to bring in former AS Roma forward Fabio Borini, for a fee of around £11 million.

The once-capped Italy forward scored nine goals in Serie A last season for his old club and was expected to aid the Reds in improving their goal-shy attacking line, as well as compensating for the loss of several experienced forwards such as Craig Bellamy and Dirk Kuyt who departed from Liverpool in the summer.

Borini has now played in 10 competitive games for the Reds before suffering an injury last weekend against Manchester United—so it seems an opportune moment to take a look and reflect on his early-season form for Liverpool.

Here's a complete report on Liverpool's No. 29.
