Liverpool deadline day

The Reds had a pretty busy deadline day for the first time in years.

Injuries to Virgil van Dijk and Joe Gomez left fans clamouring for backup.

The season ending injury to Joel Matip left the club with no choice.

Sunday evening saw a deal tied up for Ben Davies.

The 25-year-old was signed from Preston North End, the Reds stealing ahead of Celtic at the last minute.

The biggest move of the day saw long term target Ozan Kabak arrive from Schalke on a loan move with the option to buy for £18m at the end of the season.

The latest move of the window saw Takumi Minamino join Southampton on loan until the end of the season.

Upcoming fixtures

This week Liverpool take on Brighton at Anfield on Wednesday night.

The Reds then host Manchester City on Sunday afternoon.

Every game is crucial to the title race at the moment, in a best case scenario we could see the Reds top of the table on Monday.

Kabak and Davies partnership

Jürgen Klopp could make a bold decision this week.

The boss could decide to throw his new signings in at the deep end, starting Ozan Kabak and Ben Davies together at centre back.

This would be a high risk strategy but also a high reward one.

The pair need to develop an understanding and fast, playing together is the best way to do that.

The duo starting together against Brighton could help them proves themselves worthy of a start against City at the weekend.

Should they prove themselves then we would be able to start Jordan Henderson in the midfield, maybe even Fabinho if the Brazilian is fit in time.
