Brazilian playmaker could make way for Sturridge, with Sterling remaining in the side…
Here’s how we reckon Liverpool will start against Villa this evening…
GK) Simon Mignolet
The Belgian stopper has started every Premier League match this term for Liverpool, but has been criticised for his form in the last month. Not only did he make two costly errors during the festive period, but he also let in another soft goal against Stoke City last weekend.
DR) Glen Johnson
Liverpool have few options at fullback, and Johnson is an automatic starter when fit. In recent seasons, he has tamed his attacking instincts, but at home to Villa, will likely have the opportunity to get up the right flank and support the attack regularly.
DC) Martin Skrtel
Skrtel has been a mainstay in a Liverpool defender which has shipped many more goals than manager Brendan Rodgers would have liked. Luckily, they score an awful lot, but Skrtel and co. will be desperate for a clean sheet.
