Jon Flanagan has welcomed the new defensive additions to Anfield, and says he will be back to fight for his first team place again shortly.

The homegrown full back was one of the stars of the 2013-14 season, but is yet to feature this campaign after suffering a knee injury during the Reds pre-season tour of the United States.

Brendan Rodgers has since added two new full backs to the ranks, in the form of Javier Manquillo and Alberto Moreno.

And with Glen Johnson and a fit again Jose Enrique still on the clubs books, Flanagan knows he faces a fight for first team football – however it is a challenge he welcomes.
