Is this how the Reds will line up for our crucial FA Cup clash…?
Brendan Rodgers is likely to name a strong team for our FA Cup quarter-final against Blackburn Rovers, as we seek a first game at Wembley in almost three years.
He’s likely to have plenty of options available to him, with captain Steven Gerrard an outside bet to return from the injury that has kept him out for the last month.
Mamadou Sakho, Kolo Toure and Glen Johnson could also feature in the squad after missing out in recent games.
Here’s who we think we’ll select:
GK) Simon Mignolet
With Brad Jones still sidelined with an ongoing injury problem, there is no chance that Brendan Rodgers will look elsewhere this weekend. Mignolet has been in fine form recently, but will no doubt be hoping for a quiet afternoon.
DRC) Kolo Toure
Toure has been a regular in the cup games so far this season, and has not had much in the way of game time since his return from the African Cup of Nation. In contrast, Emre Can has been very busy, and deserves a rest.
DLC) Dejan Lovren
The Croatian has been steadily improving since his re-introduction to the Liverpool team, and needs more game time to continue building up his confidence. He should be one of the first names on the teamsheet for this one.
DC) Martin Skrtel
Skrtel is the glue that holds the Liverpool defence together, and will be looked to as a source of inspiration and leadership once again in this one. Blackburn possess plenty of attacking threat, so the Slovakian has to play.
