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.

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.
