Liverpool get back to Premier League action when they take on Hull City at Anfield on Saturday afternoon. Here is a predicted team for the game:
Goalkeeper: No change here. Simon Mignolet will start in goal despite his questionable display last night.
Defence: Brendan Rodgers was critical of his sides defending from set plays following their 3-0 loss to Real Madrid on Wednesday night but with Mamadou Sakho still nursing an injury, he has few options to mix things up at the heart of his defence. However, Javier Manquillo could be recalled at right back while Jose Enrique is also pushing for a start ahead of Alberto Moreno on the left.
Midfield: Emre Can made an impressive impact off the bench against Madrid so he could have played his way back into the managers thoughts with Joe Allen the man most likely to make way. Otherwise I think we’ll see Steven Gerrard joined by Jordan Henderson in midfield.
Attack: The big question is whether Mario Balotelli will keep his place after being subbed at half time against Madrid and I think we might see Rickie Lambert given a rare start this weekend. Hull are a big side and Lambert may be better suited, while his height will be a useful asset at set plays. Raheem Sterling should keep his place while Adam Lallana could get a recall after an impressive cameo last time out.
Here is how I think Liverpool will line-up against Hull:
