With huge matches against Basel and Man United coming up, the skipper could start the game from the bench…
GK) Simon Mignolet
Mignolet endured another poor afternoon against Leicester, but with only Brad Jones in reserve, he’ll keep his spot between the sticks.
DR) Glen Johnson
With Javier Manquillo playing poorly and subbed before half-time versus the Tigers, we reckon he’ll be dropped to the bench, meaning one of either Alberto Moreno or Jose Enrique could replace him. This means Johnson taking his natural right-back role.
DL) Jose Enrique
Moreno’s cameo was decent midweek, but we think Jose Enrique will get the nod – as he did against Stoke last weekend.
DC) Martin Skrtel
Skrtel has had a bad season, but actually made countless clearances and defensive headers in the 3-1 victory at the King Power Stadium.
DC) Kolo Toure
Toure should retain his place ahead of Dejan Lovren having been pretty much faultless since winning a place in the side.
