On August 13th, 2011, Liverpool FC will open their season in a highly anticipated match against Sunderland. While Sunderland are not a perennial force in the English Premier League, all LFC fans around the world are eager to see what Liverpool's new signings can produce.
Having spent just about £45 million this summer, and another £55 or so million in January, Fenway Sports Group was injected a brand new transfer policy which Liverpool has not seen in many years, especially under the Hicks/Gillett era. They have emphasised the need for young, British signings, which can be seen in the acquisitions of Andy Carroll, Jordan Henderson and Stewart Downing.
With less than two weeks until the start of the season, here is Kenny Dalglish's projected starting XI.
