Provided Brendan Rodgers sticks with the wing-back formation, Liverpool’s side to face Aston Villa at Anfield almost picks itself.
Check out the latest weekend football tips and make your predictions ahead of Liverpool’s clash against Aston Villa.
Roberto Firmino, Jordan Henderson, Dejan Lovren, Christian Benteke are all out – as are Jon Flanagan and Kolo Toure – with £100m worth of Liverpool players crocked.
Here’s the XI we think will take the field.
GK) Simon Mignolet
Despite Adam Bogdan’s penalty heroics midweek, the first-choice Belgian will be recalled.
DRC) Emre Can
Can was one of the best of a pretty poor bunch on Wednesday, so should keep his spot on the right of the back three. From here, expect him to actually get forward quite a bit.
DC) Martin Skrtel
The first-choice for Rodgers at the back, Skrtel’s played every Premier League minute so far this term and that will continue bar injury problems.
DLC) Mamadou Sakho
He would have started anyway, but with Dejan Lovren’s injury the Frenchman’s guaranteed a spot on the left beside Martin Skrtel.
