CM: Steven Gerrard
The 34 year old will be hoping for a big performance after such strong criticism throughout the week about his new defensive midfield role.
CM: Jordan Henderson
Great run for Liverpool’s second agains the Bulgarians, telling Raheem Sterling exactly where to put the ball and meeting it with aplomb. Will be back in the team once again.
LM: Raheem Sterling
Has looked tired in recent matches but provided the assist for Henderson’s goal. Could do with a rest but as Liverpool’s most attacking player going forward Rodgers will have to be a brave men to keep him on the bench.
CAM: Phillipe Coutinho
Given a rest midweek, maybe with this fixture in mind but should replace Joe Allen in the Liverpool XI who was anonymous midweek.
RM: Adam Lallana
A stop start campaign for Lallana who hasn’t quite hit the highs he was expected to at Anfield. Just one goal in seven appearances but could be back after sitting out the Champions League tie.
