Liverpool appear to have reinvested the Luis Suarez money wisely to create an improved all-round squad but it’s the absence of the previously mentioned menace that may expose the team to be less than the sum of their parts.
As much trouble as Suarez was, when he wasn’t biting or racially abusing people, he was quite an asset to the team; his goals almost firing them to a first title in 24 years.
He was also the undisputed star of the team. Now the question is: who will step up to the plate in his absence?
That’s the question ESPN’s panel asked when they were previewing Liverpool’s prospects this season.
