Liverpool boss Benitez accepts January spending cash unlikely

Liverpool boss Rafa Benitez admits he's unlikely to have any money to spend in January.

But he believes a Premier League title is still achievable without January recruits if he can keep his squad injury-free.

Benitez said: "If I have no money in the New Year it will not be a problem.

"My idea is to get all our players fit. With a full squad we have a very good team - as we showed last season when we scored a lot of goals, set some records and went very close. This season we have not just lost Steven Gerrard and Fernando Torres with injuries.

"We have other players coming back. Glen Johnson, Fabio Aurelio and Albert Riera are back training and there is Alberto Aquilani and Nabil El Zhar.

"I will say this again - with everyone available we are not the bad team that some people think.

"The problem has been that we have important players missing and in some games we have been unlucky."
