MC) Steven Gerrard
This term, from a deep-lying playmaker role, Gerrard’s scored eight and assisted nine so far for the Reds – re-establishing himself as one of the league’s best central midfielders after a quiet few seasons.
MC) Jordan Henderson
Hnederson’s played every minute of every league match this term, and is an automatic starter under Brendan Rodgers. He’ll be charged with making sure Michael Carrick has no time to dictate in midfield.
Lucas is fit and ready for selection. Rodgers knows how effective he is in a defensive midfield role, and away from home, he could be crucial. Coutinho was awful versus Southampton, and Lucas is more experienced than Joe Allen in big matches, meaning we reckon the 27-year-old’s starting today.
