Here’s an XI we reckon Brendan Rodgers could select this evening, although there’s been no online leaks as there have recently.
We can’t see the manager switching formation already after reverting to the wing-back style, so deploying a 3-4-3, this side could take the field.
GK) Adam Bogdan
He was left out of the Europa League side, but we’re sure the reserve keeper will get the nod in the League Cup.
DRC) Joe Gomez
Dropped for the Premier League game at the weekend, Gomez can expect a recall – and he fits naturally on the right side of the back three.
DC) Martin Skrtel
Kolo Toure limped out the Bordeaux game, and was left out of the squad to face Norwich as a result. For this reason we think Skrtel, Rodgers’ favourite centre-half could play in the middle of the back three.
DLC) Dejan Lovren
We reckon the Croat could come in for Mamadou Sakho, who’s played twice recently, and with Rodgers claiming fitness is always an issue for the Frenchman – it makes sense to give him a rest before the weekend match with Aston Villa.
