Liverpool look to back up their FA Cup win with three points at the Stadium of Light
Liverpool are looking to replicate their scintillating cup form in the Premier League this weekend when they face Sunderland at the Stadium of Light.
Liverpool go to Tyneside lying eighth in the table and are seven points of the much coveted fourth place sport and Champions League qualification.
Brendan Rodgers side have been inconsistent in the League but successful in the cups and will need to replicate the fighting spirit they showed against Wimbledon when clinching a hard fought 2-1 win.
We look at the side Brendan Rodgers might select for this match-up:
GK: Simon Mignolet
The Belgian returns to his former stomping ground but will know that just mistake will see him replaced in the starting XI and his future is very much in doubt.
RCB: Emre Can
Liverpool’s summer signing looks much more the player he was at Bayer Leverkusen and is finding form in the centre of the Reds defence.
