Jonjo Shelvey has been recalled early from his loan spell at Blackpool in order to provide cover, and Jay Spearing will be chomping at the bit to show what he can do in a red shirt now that there's an extended chance of a first-team run.
Shelvey, whilst undoubtedly talented, isn't quite ready for Liverpool yet, and I'm not convinced Spearing ever will be. Spearing has passion, work ethic and aggression that Andy Carroll could do well to copy, but I could never see him dominating a game at a higher level such as in the Champions League.
Many people see Lucas as almost irreplaceable, but look how well Liverpool have done without Steven Gerrard for the better part of the season.
Suarez has made the then-catastrophic departure of Fernando Torres seem a distant memory, thus proving that in fact no player is irreplaceable.
With the January window a mere month away, Liverpool may take the opportunity to strengthen in the midfield area, and here are a few possibilities that I'd like to see come into the club.
