Is this how the Reds will line up…?
Philippe Coutinho and Jordan Henderson should return as Liverpool take on Manchester City at Anfield. Lazar Markovic is also available again after suspension, with the Reds looking for the perfect response to Thursday’s Europa League defeat.
Here’s who we think they’ll go with:
GK) Simon Mignolet
Excellent against Besiktas, and near-perfect over the last month of fixtures, but he’ll need a big performance against City’s star-studded strikeforce.
DRC) Emre Can
Played in midfield against Besiktas, but should be moved back into the defensive three to help cope with City’s attacking threat. If Henderson isn’t fit, then Kolo Toure will likely start.
DLC) Dejan Lovren
Needs a big response after his penalty heartbreak against Besiktas, and he’ll certainly have his hands full with Sergio Aguero and co.
DC) Martin Skrtel
Captained the team well in the absence of Henderson against Besiktas, and will need to be on top form again to deal with this one.
