Liverpool need a squad overhaul with availability the focus.

It is better to have two squad players who are always there than three who are rarely available.
When the fixtures start piling up we need to be able to rotate our first team in order to get the best performances out of them.
This summer is the ideal opportunity to act decisively, we need a clear out and fresh blood should come in.
