Brendan Rodgers has vice-captain back, but Italian forward remains out…
GK) Simon Mignolet
With Brad Jones the only other option right now in goal, Mignolet is practically a guaranteed starter providing he’s fit.
DR) Glen Johnson
Javier Manquillo was poor at the weekend, meaning Johnson could revert to his more natural right-back position, allowing Alberto Moreno to return to the starting XI.
DC) Martin Skrtel
The Slovakian always starts when fit, and despite fairly ropey recent form – he’ll do so again versus the Bulgarian champions.
DC) Kolo Toure
Rumours are rife that that Ivorian will replace the woefully out of form Dejan Lovren at the back. Most Reds fans will be pleased if the change has been made, unfortunately for the £20m Croat.
