July is upon us and attention is beginning to turn to the start of the new Premier League season. Some Liverpool players returned to pre-season training this week, with more to follow next week. Indeed, the Reds' first friendly, against Brondby, is less than a fortnight away.
Brendan Rodgers' side confirmed the arrival of Adam Lallana this week to follow up earlier deals for Rickie Lambert and Emre Can.
Meanwhile, Luis Suarez's seemingly imminent departure will leave Rodgers with a large hole to fill in his squad ahead of the new season. What happens over the next month could mean a new look Liverpool side come the opening day.
What does seem certain is that Rodgers has identified left-back as an area he wishes to strengthen, while attacking players also continue to be linked with Anfield.
Here we predict Liverpool's starting XI for their opening Premier League game against Southampton.
