The forward never had a future at Liverpool and the club have decided to part ways. Adorjan is unlikely to ever play a prominent role in the Premier League.

Liverpool continued their recent dominance over Tottenham with a tidy 0-3 win in which Alberto Moreno earned a goal and a clean sheet on the day.

Taking into account the two matches between these two clubs last season, Liverpool have outscored Spurs twelve goals to none. Raheem Sterling was once again darting around like a flea on a hot brick, causing problems all afternoon for the Spurs defense and scoring the opening goal, which proved to be the game-winner. It was the Liverpool defense that stood out though, as they continue to keep Spurs out while seemingly conceding to anyone and everyone else. Moreno dispossessed a newly subbed-in Andros Townsend and sprinted down the left to score on a superb individual effort. We may see an unchanged backline when Pool host Aston Villa next. Oh, we are required by Mario Balotelli to mention that Mario Balotelli made his debut.

Martin Skrtel joins a growing list of injured Liverpool defenders as he will need to be assessed over the next 48 hours before Brendan Rodgers can decide on his availability against Tottenham.

With a plethora of defenders heading into the season, Rodgers is finding himself quickly going from having a selection headache to now needing to piece together a healthy back line for Spurs. Should Skrtel miss out, Mamadou Sakho would most likely make his first start of the season and partner Dejan Lovren in the center of defense.

Brendan Rodgers has revealed that Adam Lallana will be in the squad for Liverpool when they travel to White Hart Lane to face Tottenham this weekend.

Rodgers went on further to say that the midfielder was still short of match fitness so you can rule out any chances of him starting. In fact, it is likely Lallana will not feature at all unless in an emergency situation as he is making a quicker-than-expected recovery from his knee injury.

Alberto Moreno is one of a few doubts among Brendan Rodgers' defenders ahead of this weekend's match with Spurs as he attempts to recover from an ankle injury sustained during Liverpool's loss to Manchester City.

Jose Enrique and Glen Johnson are also carrying knocks but none of the trio of fullbacks have been formally ruled out as of yet for the trip to White Hart Lane. After seeming to have an abundance of fullbacks at their disposal, the Reds suddenly find themselves with only one that is fully fit, Javier Manquillo.

Not only were Liverpool on the receiving end of a hugely efficient Manchester City performance leaving The Etihad pointless but the away side also left with a number of injury concerns following their disappointing defeat on Monday.

Brendan Rodgers' defensive problems deepened after his side conceded three sloppy goals against their fellow title contenders and finished the game with ten men although conceivably things could’ve easily have been worse. Glenn Johnson picked up a thigh problem late into the game as the Reds foraged for some score-line respectability; the England full-back was unable to continue and having already made three substitutions Liverpool finished a man down. Debutant Alberto Moreno (ankle) and Martin Skrtel (knock) also suffered injuries and all three players will be assessed ahead of Sunday’s crucial game at Tottenham.

City exploited gaps in City's newly assembled defense in cruising to a 3-1 win.

Alberto Moreno, Dejan Lovern and Steven Gerrard have some work to do to tighten up Liverpool's new look defense if they are going to challenge for the Premier League title again this season. Brendan Rodgers spent significant money upgrading last season's group but new signings Alberto Moreno and Dejan Lovern looked mediocre on City's first and third goals. Fortunately there's a lot of season left to pull it together against big opponents.

Mario Balotelli signaled his move to Liverpool becoming official by Tweeting YNWA! COME ON LIVERPOOL. The Mario Balotelli era at Anfield has begun.

First he didn't like much of anything about England. Then he went to Milan and decided England wasn't so bad. All summer Mario Balotelli has been linked with one high profile English club (Arsenal) or another (Liverpool). Today, the move has been finalized with the Italian forward and the club both announcing the deal on Twitter. There are seemingly as many opinions of how the move will work out as there are fans of the Premier League but we should find out starting with Week 3 as today's match with Manchester City comes too soon for Balotelli to figure.

Brendan Rodgers is set to have another weapon from his summer shopping spree available to him this weekend as Lazar Markovic has been deemed fit and will be in the squad Monday night when the Reds battle Manchester City.

Much like the departure of Gareth Bale from Tottenham last summer, the apparent strategy is to scoop up as many players as possible in the hopes to somehow fill the void left behind by Luis Suarez. Truth be told, all the quantity in the world cannot compensate for the level of quality special players like Bale and Suarez deliver. Markovic will have to earn his way into regular playing time and with the apparent arrival of Mario Balotelli imminent, it only complicates matter for fantasy managers in attempting to determine which players will be dependable regular starters. Jon Flanagan, incidentally, has been ruled out of this weekend's clash.

There appear to be only the details standing between Mario Balotelli and a move to Liverpool.

Reports have the transfer costing Liverpool £16million in addition to £120,000 a week in wages which isn't a huge price if you consider Balotelli a premium forward. The question is whether Balotelli is a premium forward. The physical talent appears to be there but it's hard to see him fitting into a Liverpool attack that is based on rapid-strike counterattacks. "Quick on the counterattack" is not a phrase typically used to describe the mercurial Italian leaving us to wonder how he'll fit in and, if he isn't a regular starter, how that will go down in the locker room. Here's a question for you to ponder...who makes way for Balotelli? Sturridge? Sterling? Coutinho? Henderson? Gerrard? A holding midfielder?

While investors who played Daniel Sturridge in their Week 1 fantasy teams can feel satisfied with his 16 point output, it masked and otherwise lackluster performance from the expensive forward.

12 of the 16 points Sturridge gained came on the slight touch from Raheem Sterling's header that some would argue may have been on its way into goal without the assistance from Sturridge. Otherwise, he displayed little threat throughout the entirety of the match, failing to register any other shots on goal. To be fair, points are points, and Sturridge is sure to poach his share of goals this season, but the lack of Luis Suarez should have managers viewing Sturridge a tier below the elite strikers in the game.

Liverpool earn three points over a tenacious Southampton side with a 2-1 win as Raheem Sterling notched his first goal and assist of the season.

Sterling was the first man on the score sheet when, in the 23rd minute, he was fed an exquisite through ball from Jordan Henderson and beat Fraser Forster with a well-composed strike. After the Saints leveled things in the 2nd half, Sterling flicked a header on that found Daniel Sturridge at the back post who squirted one in with the slightest of touches. Sterling was a force today, getting forward at will, and though he may have some quiet performances here and there during the season, he generally has to be considered among fantasy midfield options, week in and week out.

Jon Flanagan has been ruled out of Liverpool's opener against Southampton, joining a list of names that include Adam Lallana, Lazar Markovic and Daniel Agger.

With so many new toys at fullback for Liverpool, the absence of Flanagan should only help make Brendan Rodgers selection easier. Agger is trying to get back to fitness before the window closes as it appears his days of starting at Anfield are over. We have to wait another few weeks to get a glimpse of Lallana but Markovic hopes to be in contention as early as Week 2.

Nik Argiropoulos reckons Daniel Sturridge is almost guaranteed to get on the scoresheet in Week 1.

With Luis Suarez gone the pressure is on Sturridge as Liverpool's lead striker, and he has the talent and self-confidence required to have a really big season. It starts against Southampton and I'd be surprised if he doesn't get himself on the scoresheet.

Word from Sevilla is that Alberto Moreno has been left out of the UEFA Super Cup squad because a deal has been completed moving him to Liverpool for £12million.

At that price, Moreno would be quite a bargain as reports had his acquisition coming in for upwards of £20million at various points over the summer. With Javier Manquillo also having arrived, the starting situation at the fullback spots for Liverpool is a bit murky. Moreno will almost certainly start regularly once Brendan Rodgers feels he has integrated sufficiently with the squad. Glen Johnson has been playing as a makeshift left back and he will now be competing with newly acquired Javier Manquillo and Jon Flanagan. That's a lot of right backs for one spot. Unless Rodgers makes an official pronouncement for Week 1, it might be worth staying away from Liverpool's fullbacks until we get a clearer picture.
