Nine Liverpool fringe players playing for a place at Wembley, as Reds training sessions spice up

Posted by

Javier Manquillo

Liverpool’s return to a four-man defence using full-backs has given the youngster a shot at the XI. Glen Johnson played well against Blackburn and should keep his place but the Spaniard should be on the bench.

Fabio Borini

Like Lambert, the Italian scored against Villa last time out, while he also netted on his last appearance at Wembley – with Sunderland during last year’s Capital One Cup final. Between him and Balotelli for a spot on the bench.

Lazar Markovic

Has had to make do with just a handful of opportunities in recent weeks, the last of which ended after just 45 minutes against Arsenal. Hard to see him making the team but it’s equally difficult to see him missing the bench.
