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

Liverpool will be looking to book their place in the semi-finals of the FA Cup when they take on Blackburn Anfield on Sunday afternoon. Here is the side I think Brendan Rodgers will pick:
Goalkeeper: Simon Mignolet has been back to his best in recent weeks so he’s a cert to start in goal on Sunday.
Defence: Mamadou Sakho has returned to full training after missing the last four games with a thigh injury so the Frenchman is back in contention to start. If Rodgers doesn’t think he’s ready yet then Dejan Lovren is ready to continue alongside Martin Skrtel and Emre Can at the back.
Midfield: Steven Gerrard is back in light training as he looks to return from his hamstring injury but this game is likely to come too soon. With Lucas Leiva also still out, Jordan Henderson is expected to once again start alongside Joe Allen in midfield. Jordon Ibe is out with a knee injury so Lazar Markovic should start on the right wing with Alberto Moreno on the left.
Attack: With Liverpool’s next game not until next weekend I don’t expect Rodgers to rest any players so Daniel Sturridge should continue up front with Raheem Sterling moving further forward into attack having played on the right wing last time out. Adam Lallana is the man most likely to make way so Philippe Coutinho should keep his place in the side.
Here is how I think we’ll see Liverpool line-up:
