Liverpool transfer news
Jordan Henderson, Philippe Coutinho, Mamadou Sakho, Steven Gerrard and Glen Johnson have all missed the trip, with Rodgers expected to name a highly inexperienced bench including several academy players.
Here’s how we think the Reds will line-up:
GK) Simon Mignolet
The Belgian keeper secured his eighth clean sheet in 16 games on Sunday and should be full of confidence heading into this game.
DRC) Kolo Toure
Toure is yet to feature since returning from a victorious African Cup of Nations campaign with the Ivory Coast, and is definitely due a start here.
DLC) Dejan Lovren
The untimely injury to Sakho forced the Croatian into action against his former club Southampton on Sunday, so he’s unlikely to lose his place.
DC) Martin Skrtel
Skrtel should remain the constant in a much-changed back-line, and could even wear the captains armband in the absence of Gerrard and Henderson.
