Whatever the result, we’ll learn a lot about our team this afternoon…
Liverpool fans across the world will have been eagerly anticipating today’s game, arguably since the full-time whistle rang against Manchester United almost a fortnight ago. This is when we learn what our team is made of.
There are a number of major questions that will be answered for supporters over the course of 90 minutes, and we’ve collated the biggest pre-match talking points in our list below. Here’s hoping for good news for the Reds!
5) Kolo Toure or Dejan Lovren?
Martin Skrtel’s absence through suspension has left Brendan Rodgers with a huge selection headache ahead of today’s game. Does he go with the experience of Kolo Toure, or the potential quality of Dejan Lovren? Certainly, if ever there was a game for the latter to prove he’s worthy of his £20m price tag, it’s this one. In just a couple of hours, we will find out who Rodgers has gone for. Whoever misses out – do they still have a future at the club?
