Goalkeeper: Simon Mignolet
The 26-year old may has had a quiet summer playing benchwarmer to Thibaut Courtois during Belgium's World Cup campaign, so he'll be raring to get his second season at Liverpool going.
Right-back: Glen Johnson
Johnson's form was inconsistent during 2013-14, caught out of position on several key occasions and lacking the pace he once showed. However, with few options at right-back for Liverpool, the 29-year-old looks set to continue as a first-team regular.
Centre-back: Martin Skrtel
Likewise with Skrtel—brilliant patches of form during 2013-14 and some match-winning challenges, but is he Mamadou Sakho's long-term centre-back partner? Southampton's Dejan Lovren has been heavily linked with a move to Liverpool this summer, as per Simeon Gholam of the Daily Mail, but Skrtel keeps his place in the team for now.
Sakho was one of France's outstanding performers at the World Cup and having comfortably settled into Liverpool's defence last season, he will provide the strength, pace and agility needed help to fix the cracks that appeared.
Left-back: Jon Flanagan
With Aly Cissokho having returned to Valencia following his loan spell at Liverpool and Jose Enrique having not played through injury for almost a year, 21-year-old Flanagan looks set to carry on defensive responsibilities on the left.
That is, of course, if Liverpool don't sign a left-back this summer, with Swansea City's Ben Davies the latest name to be linked, as per Chris Bascombe of The Telegraph. Should the position be filled by a summer signing, Flanagan may well challenge Johnson for his place at right-back.
