Paul Merson has warned Liverpool to make signings in the transfer window or risk being underprepared should any injuries happen this season. He told Sky Sports:
"I think they need to buy someone. It wouldn’t surprise me if they finished fourth this season and I thought that before this game [against Leeds].
"It’s the same team and they have a massive amount of players who have to play every week. Virgil van Dijk can’t get injured.
"The full backs can’t get injured. They haven’t got anyone to replace the front three if they’re injured.
"That’s why I worry about Liverpool, there’s five or six players who must play week in, week out, otherwise the team is weakened immensely.
“This is the hardest league in the world. You have to be fit, it’s the first thing.”
