Rio Ferdinand has talked up the strength in depth that Liverpool FC have at their disposal this season.

The Reds have been in good form in recent weeks and they moved up to fourth place in the Premier League table last weekend when they thrashed Brighton and Hove Albion 5-1.

Liverpool FC followed up that impressive Premier League win by beating Spartak Moscow 7-0 at Anfield on Wednesday night to book their place in the last 16 of the Champions League in style.

The likes of Daniel Sturridge, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Adam Lallana have found their starting opportunities to be fairly restricted so far this season.

And former Manchester United defender Ferdinand believes that the Reds still have a great deal of attacking talent at their disposal from players who haven’t been given much time to prove themselves this season.

Speaking to BT Sport on Wednesday night, ex-England star Ferdinand said: “Liverpool have a lot of quality on the bench.

“They’ve got Sturridge who came off the bench who is an England squad player. They’ve got The Ox who cost £40m. They’ve got Lallana to come in.”

Liverpool FC return to Premier League action on Sunday with a crunch clash against Everton at Anfield.

The Reds head into this weekend’s round of game in fourth place in the Premier League table and 14 points behind leaders Manchester City after 15 games of the new campaign.
