Here’s the side we reckon Brendan Rodgers will choose to start to for Liverpool’s match with West Ham on Sunday…
GK) Simon Mignolet
Mignolet was relatively untroubled versus Spurs last weekend, and he’ll hope for a similarly quiet afternoon today.
DR) Glen Johnson
A guaranteed starter when fit, Johnson’s foraging runs up the right flank will provide Liverpool width, with Rodgers likely to play with a narrow midfield.
DC) Martin Skrtel
Skrtel was exceptional defensively last time out, but he’s also provided much at the top end of the field for the Reds this season – scoring six goals in the league.
DC) Mamadou Sakho
The first controversial prediction we’re making… West Ham have Andy Carroll up top, and Daniel Agger struggles to deal with physical forwards. Sakho is monstrously powerful, and excellent in the air, meaning he could earn his first start in some time.
DL) Jon Flanagan
Flanagan is playing very well recently, and will come up against former teammate Stewart Downing.
