CM) Steven Gerrard
Will need to lead his troops well in what will likely be a tough test against Yaya Toure, David Silva and the other talented members of City’s midfield.
CM) Joe Allen
With Lucas linked again with a move to the club, it is likely to be a straight fight between the Welshman and Emre Can for the second deep midfield role alongside the captain.
AM) Jordan Henderson
Made one outstanding pass to set-up Raheem Sterling for Liverpool’s opener last week, and will need to make another all-action display here.
