Rodgers Makes 2 Changes: Predicted Liverpool Line-Up To Face Everton

By on February 5, 2015

Liverpool will be looking to continue their fine form when they take on Everton at Goodison Park on Saturday afternoon. Here is the side I think Brendan Rodgers will pick:

Goalkeeper: Simon Mignolet has finally started to find a bit of form and with Brad Jones still out injured, the Belgian is certain to keep his place in goal.

Defence: Rodgers is unlikely to tinker too much with his back three which has been very settled in recent weeks. Dejan Lovren will be assessed on Friday but I still think the best he can hope for is a place on the bench with Emre Can, Martin Skrtel and Mamadou Sakho once again making up the back three.

Midfield: Lazar Markovic is a doubt with a back injury that he suffered against Bolton last night so if he misses out we might see Jordan Henderson start on the right with Steven Gerrard keeping his place in the middle of midfield. Lucas Leiva is expected to overcome the knock that kept him out of the FA Cup replay at the Macron Stadium while Alberto Moreno is likely to start ahead of Jose Enrique on the left.

Attack: Rodgers has confirmed he’ll assess the fitness of Daniel Sturridge ahead of the game but I think we’ll see the striker start from the bench again with Raheem Sterling starting up front. Philippe Coutinho was in excellent form against Bolton and should keep his place alongside Adam Lallana in attack.

Here is how I think we’ll see Liverpool line-up:

    Henderson is the fly in the ointment with that turn out. He simply does not cut it.

      What Jason? You do not know football if you think hendo is weak. He’s been consistently our best player for weeks. Outperformed everyone when he came on vs Bolton. Energy and drive. A captain in the making for sure
