DM – Steven Gerrard
May have enjoyed a more advanced role in recent times, yet up against Los Blancos the hosts could be spending lots of time without possession and Gerrard will need to sit and dictate play if possible.
CM – Jordan Henderson
Could make a real difference as Henderson has the capability to run and run and this will be a great asset in a game like this.
CM – Joe Allen
Emre Can is likely to be dropped after struggling against the Hoops and although Philippe Coutinho could be used in the role, we’ve opted for Allen for his superior defensive capabilities.
