Following news of yet another injury blow for Daniel Sturridge, Liverpool are now without three key players for some time as Steven Gerrard and Martin Skrtel also face bans. Here’s how the Reds could line up without these three big names…
GK: Simon Mignolet
No change in goal, of course, with the in-form Simon Mignolet continuing as number one for Brendan Rodgers’ top four-chasing side.
DC: Emre Can
A youngster performing well as a centre-back, Emre Can continues as part of the back three.
DC: Kolo Toure
Replacing the suspended Skrtel, Kolo Toure looks the best bet to step in in the middle, ahead of flop summer signing Dejan Lovren.
DC: Mamadou Sakho
Finally, Mamadou Sakho makes up the final member of the back three for Liverpool.
