Liverpool v Sunderland Preview

Liverpool return to league action at Anfield on Saturday against the Black Cats in what is a MUST WIN game. we have a good record against Sunderland at home and I’m hoping that continues as we look to bounce back from the Carling Cup shock exit against N’hampton Town.

Roy Hodgson is likely to make as many as 9 to 10 changes from the team that played in mid week. The only injury concern as of now is Fabio Aurelio and Dirk Kuyt who was initially supposed to be out for a month has made a swift recovery and might be included in the squad after training for the past couple of days. we need to bounce back from our disappointing display last time out and pick up some quick points from the next few matches. this would certainly help the players in building up their confidence and we can finally get our season up and running. it would be brilliant if Shelvey could play for a bit after an encouraging display against N’hampton.

Predicted line up:

Reina, Johnson, Carra, Skrtel, Konchesky, Maxi, Poulsen, Gerrard, Cole, Meireles, Torres
