CM – Steven Gerrard
The captain was dropped to the bench against Madrid, but is expected to be recalled by Rodgers and the 34-year-old will be looking to make amends after a well publicised slip in this fixture last term.
CM – Jordan Henderson
Was also rested for the trip to the Estadio Santiago Bernabeu, but as one of the club’s best players Henderson should be back in the team without question – even with Emre Can and Lucas Leiva playing well.
RM – Raheem Sterling
Has struggled to find the form that was so exciting last campaign, but as one of Rodgers’ best attacking players the 41-year-old can not afford not to have Sterling in the lineup.
CAM – Philippe Coutinho
Was awarded the club’s Player of the Month award for October and the Brazilian is certainly impressing currently and we think he’ll get a rare chance in the No.10 role.
LM – Adam Lallana
Following a £25m summer move from boyhood club Southampton this England international is now starting to establish himself in Rodgers’ XI.
