Liverpool travel to managerless Sunderland on Sunday evening hoping to get their Premier League campaign back on track after a string of poor results and performances.
The Reds topped the table with three wins from three early on, but a lucky draw at Swansea and a miserable home defeat to Southampton has derailed their brilliant start. Liverpool striker Luis Suarez will start his first Premier league game of the season, and will be even more important to Brendan Rodgers’ outfit as young creative Brazilian influence Coutinho will miss out again with a shoulder injury.
Kolo Toure will continue to deputise at right-back for the injured Glen Johnson, with the Reds expected to remain unchanged from the side that lost to Manchester United in the League Cup midweek.
Interim head coach Kevin Ball almost has a fully fit squad to choose from, with Scottish forward Steven Fletcher the only noticeable absentee. The Black Cats will be desperate to pick up their first win of what’s been a miserable start to the season, and Liverpool will have to face a team desperate to impress an incoming manager.
