The January transfer window may have just closed, but that just means it's time to look towards the summer with a guest post series analyzing Liverpool's existing needs from a tactical point of view. As another January transfer window slammed shut last week, the collective Liverpool faithful had its faith tested once more.  Despite having a frightfully long injury list and playing a grueling schedule across four competitions, LFC conducted no significant transfer activity in January (with all apologies to Steven Caulker and Marko Grujic).

Steven Caulker getting first to the ball knocked down into the box by the combined aerial efforts of Christian Benteke and Robbie Brady. He took a low, raking swipe that bounced back to the Southampton loanee for a headed effort. Only this time the looping rebound would present a chance for the Reds, only this time it fell to Adam Lallana and he made sure Norwich City paid for that failure to clear the danger. "Not scoring has been...

Despite Lack of Earlier Chances, Tiago Ilori Pushes for as Many Minutes as Possible

Back from loan and fresh off his Anfield debut, Tiago Ilori broke down the struggles with being on loan and the importance of putting in a shift in training. Poor Tiago Ilori.

Caulker has so far made not one but two unexpected substitute appearances at centre forward....
