Is this how the Reds will line up when they take on Blackburn Rovers…?
Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers has plenty to consider ahead of his team’s FA Cup quarter-final against Blackburn Rovers. Does he named an unchanged team, after a very impressive performance against Burnley? Does he rest players? Does he recall captain Steven Gerrard?
The Liverpool captain is expected to return and play some role in the clash, most likely from the bench, while Mamadou Sakho and Glen Johnson – who have also been sidelined recently – are both available.
Here’s who we think he’ll go with:
GK) Simon Mignolet
The Belgian has been in fine form since the turn of the year, and with Brad Jones still out, his place is not under threat.
DRC) Kolo Toure
Emre Can has played a lot of football recently, while Toure has featured sparingly since his return from the African Cup of Nations.
DLC) Dejan Lovren
Steadily having his confidence restored, and looking more the player that Liverpool paid all that money for last summer.
DC) Martin Skrtel
Liverpool’s defensive leader has been a virtual ever-present so far this season. We don’t expect that to change here.
