Hindsight is a beautiful thing. When Liverpool missed out on the transfer of Moisés Caicedo in the summer window, for many it felt like a catastrophic moment. Yet looking back on that fateful day a few months later, Liverpool will not be kicking itself.

The Reds acted in the right way and did their best to convince Caicedo to join the club. However, the Ecuadorian instead favored a move to Stamford Bridge over Anfield and that was that. There was nothing Liverpool could have done after agreeing a Premier League record transfer fee for his services.

While at the time missing out on one of the best midfield prospects in the league was bitterly disappointing, with hindsight, it's obvious this was not the end of the world for Liverpool. If anything the Reds have fared a lot better than Caicedo's Chelsea side so far this season, finding themselves in third place and already eight points above Caicedo's Blues.
