Kenny Dalglish Liverpool side has been unlucky this season with the number of draws the team has delivered but his biggest new asset has come off the the Physio table to deliver a captain's performance and win the man-of-the-match award against Newcastle marking his return to side in the last 30 minutes with a trademark goal.
This time of the season with the transfer window opening on the 1st January it is the players that are returning from injury that can provide the "transfer" impact on the squad.
Liverpool are thought to be looking at Rory Donnelly, the 19-year-old Cliftonville striker is who has attracted attention from around 15 English clubs.
There is a significant interest about the promising Northern Ireland U21 international, who is widely regarded as the best player to grace the IFA Premiership for a number of years.
Arsenal and Manchester United both had the striker watched last week, and are expected to show their hand shortly, but Kenny Dalglish has made no secret of his intention to bolster his striking options at Anfield, and secure the signature of this promising young talent.
Prior to the Newcastle game, goals have certainly not been forthcoming for Liverpool with 21 in 18 Barclays Premier League games.
Talk of striker Andy Carroll on his way out of Merseyside are premature, Dalglish is extremely loyal to his players and the ex-Newcastle player will be given time to regain his confidence and Donnelly is by no means the finished article, and still has a lot to learn to make him one for the future.
