Predicted Liverpool line-up: Reds XI for Real Madrid…
Here is the team that we think should take on Real Madrid in Tuesday’s crucial Champions League clash, where defeat for the Reds could leave us on the verge of elimination from the competition.
GK) Simon Mignolet
The Belgian goalkeeper will remain the obvious number one until any potential new arrival, and he will definitely be between the sticks in Madrid.
RB) Javi Manquillo
Despite Glen Johnson being fully fit, former Atletico Madrid defender Javi Manquillo is set to earn the chance to face his old city rivals.
CB) Martin Skrtel
Skrtel has been relatively disappointing so far this season, especially in comparison with his exploits of the previous campaign. But it’s hard to look beyond him in such an important game.
CB) Kolo Toure
Kolo Toure has actually played in a victory at Estadio Santiago Bernabeu, keeping a clean sheet in a 0-1 victory for Arsenal. The trouble is, that was in 2008. Brendan Rodgers would be taking a big risk starting the Ivorian again here.
LB) Alberto Moreno
The young Spaniard will be desperate to atone for his costly error against Newcastle at the weekend, and what better time to do it than against the European Champions?
