Here are five possibilities for Brendan Rodgers to consider...
Liverpool's academy starlet has struggled for chances this year despite impressing in pre-season. He played in Europa League qualifying against Hearts, but has not had much of a look in since then, but this could change all that. These next few months will be an important chance for Morgan, and he will hope for opportunities. He is a classic goal poacher, and while some Liverpool fans may have reservations over whether he is ready, there is only one way to find out. If it doesn't work out for him, then a spell on loan in January could be beneficial.
Samed Yesil looks to be an excellent piece of business by Liverpool, and that is a phrase which hasn't been uttered much over the past two years. The German under-19 international appears to be a born goalscorer, but like Morgan, has found opportunities difficult to come by. He does appear to be above Morgan in the pecking order, and seems to be a more likely option for Liverpool at present.
In the light of Fabio Borini's injury, Dani Pacheco is the player who has been discussed the most. The Spaniard is on the cusp of the first team squad at present, and has commented that he finds it difficult flitting between mixing with the first team and playing for the reserves. Borini has often found himself playing wide in a front three, and this is the role in which Pacheco would replace him.
Admittedly, this isn't an option which will excite many Liverpool fans, but as a stop gap, it could just work. Cole has the experience to play across the front line, and importantly, the motivation to prove himself at the club. One thing Cole has been good at throughout his career is popping up with goals, and if he could play a role between now and January it would be a timely bonus.
Why not? Many believe Gerrard's best position is behind the striker, and if Rodgers were to push him up to support Suarez the pair could just have some success. Gerrard's form in the centre of midfield has been indifferent this season, often giving the ball away, so in some ways the manager has little to lose in trying it out. The Reds are well covered in the middle, and it could allow Jordan Henderson a route back into the side.
Which of the five do you believe is Liverpool's best option?
