Rodgers Makes 7 Changes: Predicted Liverpool Starting XI To Face Chelsea

By on November 6, 2014

Liverpool will look to bounce back from their mid-week disappointment in Europe when they host Chelsea at Anfield on Saturday lunchtime. Here is the line-up I think Brendan Rodgers will go with:

Goalkeeper: Simon Mignolet put in an excellent display against Real Madrid and will keep goal once again this weekend.


Defence: Glen Johnson is expected to be recalled to the starting eleven after being left out in midweek with Javier Manquillo dropping to the bench. Kolo Toure has a solid case to keep his place after a superb performance against Madrid but I have a feeling Dejan Lovren will be brought back in alongside Martin Skrtel at the back.

Midfield: Steven Gerrard and Jordan Henderson are almost certain to come straight back into the side after being controversially left out on Tuesday night. Lucas Leiva may feel unlucky if he misses out but Emre Can could be picked ahead of the Brazilian and Joe Allen in midfield.

Attack: Rodgers is expected to completely change his attack with Mario Balotelli, Philippe Coutinho and Raheem sterling all being recalled after their exclusion at the Bernabeu, with Adam Lallana, Lazar Markovic and Fabio Borini the men to make way.
