Liverpool’s 2-2 draw with Bulgarian side Ludogorets on Wednesday stopped a four match losing streak for the Anfield side who welcome Stoke City on Saturday.
With a number of injuries to contend with and shakey form at best, Brendan Rodgers may shuffle his team selection again in a bid to get the Reds just their fifth league win this season.
The Potters will want to get back on track after a shock home defeat to Burnley last weekend and will be seeking revenge against a side they conceded five to at the Britannia Stadium last season.
GK: Simon Mignolet
Despite a blunder in mid-week, Mignolet looks set to keep his place as long as the unconvincing Brad Jones is the Reds only other choice between the sticks.
RB: Javi Manquillo
The young right back showed how solid he is defensively against Ludogorets, he’s plenty of potential and should start again for Liverpool at right back.
CB: Martin Skrtel
Culpable for the free kick which led to Crystal Palace’s third last week. But as the most experienced and fit defender on the books Skrtel will remain at the heart of the Reds defence as long as Mamadou Sakho is out injured.
CB: Dejan Lovren
The most contentious position to predict on the pitch. If Sakho is fit enough to start at the weekend, you’d expect him to partner Skrtel ahead of Lovren and Kolo Toure considering their fortunes recently.
Neither Toure or the Croat have performed to a high enough standard this season but you’d expect the former Southampton man would get the nod just for the sheer number of games he’s played with Skrtel in that they might understand each other more.
LB: Glen Johnson
He may have lost his man to allow Ludogorets in for a late equaliser on Wednesday but seems preferred to the more inexperienced Alberto Moreno, who came on as a substitute in Bulgaria, at left back by Brendan Rodgers.
