Liverpool: Full Report Card for Every Position for August

After a barnstorming sophomore season in charge of Liverpool, Brendan Rodgers can look to the 2014/15 Premier League campaign with great encouragement. The report card for the Reds’ first month reflects a promising start, with room for improvement.

Marking the Liverpool players on their performances during August will be based on their overall contributions and value to the team.

A summer of immense change was prompted by the record sale of talismanic striker Luis Suarez, and the Reds have signed nine new players.

Belgian striker Divock Origi is the only of these acquisitions not remaining in the Liverpool squad for the season, having returned to Lille on loan.

Rodgers’ charges have begun their season in form, with six points from a possible nine.

An opening weekend 2-1 home victory over Ronald Koeman’s Southampton saw Liverpool grind out a result, with Daniel Sturridge’s glancing finish cancelling out Nathaniel Clyne’s equaliser.

Not so fortunate in the following fixture, however, Rodgers was dealt a lesson in clinical tactics as Manchester City overran the Reds defence in a 3-1 victory at the Etihad Stadium.

Liverpool finished the month with a welcome visit to White Hart Lane, however, the scene of great joy last season; goals from Raheem Sterling, Steven Gerrard and Alberto Moreno saw the Reds take all three points, leaving them in fifth place before the international break.

As his newly formed squad gels, Rodgers will hope for improvement and consistency as the season progresses.

Here is Liverpool’s full report card for every position for August.
