Predicted Liverpool Starting XI To Take On Sunderland

By on September 27, 2013

Liverpool get back to Premier League action as the visit the Stadium of Light on Sunday afternoon.

Brendan Rodgers played a virtually full-strength side during their midweek loss to Man Utd and he’s unlikely to make too many changes for the trip to Sunderland.

The game at Old Trafford saw Luis Suarez make his long-awaited comeback after completing his 10-match ban. The Uruguayan put in a lively display and is expected to retain his place in support of Daniel Sturridge up front.

With Philippe Coutinho on the sidelines, Victor Moses and Jordan Henderson are likely to start with Steven Gerrard and Lucas Leiva continuing in midfield.

It’s at the back where there is some uncertainty for Liverpool. Rodgers played a back 3 at Old Trafford but we could see him revert to a traditional back four this weekend, but the personal is unlikely to change too much irrespective of the formation used.

Daniel Agger is still a doubt with a rib injury so we could see Martin Skrtel partnered by Mamadou Sakho in the centre of defence with Kolo Toure playing at right back in the absence of Glen Johnson. Should Rodgers continue with his back three, we’ll see Skrtel, Sahko and Toure play at the back with Enrique and Henderson used as ‘wing-backs’.

Here is our predicted line-up:

    not a strong line-up, lucas and henderson have done nothing in the last two, they were poor against southampton,poor against man utd.L/pool got Luis Alberto use the guy let him get games under his belt, play him across the front three, use Sahko as a holding midfielder his big frame looks good for that position

    I hope BR doesn’t play Henderson. Plz don’t play Henderson! He and Lucas are our weakest players. Alberto or Sterling for Henderson. Hope Xabi Alonso signs in January.

    A good line up, bt wish kelly shld be given a chance dia, suarez used up front and also our new boys given a little chance to play so as to build confidence. Tiago need games, alberto too. We dont expect more injuries bt we will always see it. Wish coutinho quick recovery.
