Reds to go all out against Blues with strongest side…
Having drawn 1-1 leg in the first leg at Anfield, here’s the side we expect Liverpool to start with against Chelsea on Tuesday.
GK) Simon Mignolet
The Belgian has kept three clean-sheets in his past four matches, and it now looks unlikely that he’ll be replaced this January.
DRC) Emre Can
Played in the middle of the back-three against Bolton, Can will likely go back to the right to accommodate the returning Martin Skrtel.
DLC) Mamadou Sakho
The Frenchman has been a rock at ‘left centre-back’ ever since winning a spot in the team, and he’s a certainty to retain his place.
DC) Martin Skrtel
The Slovakian got a well-earned rest in the FA Cup, but will return to the starting XI to continue his battle with Chelsea hitman Diego Costa.
