The return of Javier Mascherano, Lucas Levia and Ryan Babel will help Liverpool says Steven Gerrard.The trio missed the start of the season due to competing in the Beijing Olympics. However, they are now back at Melwood and that will be a boost to the Reds says Gerrard.
"You can see the squad is now starting to look stronger, with the return of Ryan, Javier and Lucas. The manager has a lot more options now," said the Liverpool captain.
"There is still some time in the transfer window and I think in that time you will start to see our squad get to full strength.
"I think there will be another arrival before the deadline.
"The manager's obviously got his eye on two or three different players, and I think it would help us if another new face came in."
