      Liverpool 2-1 Swansea City: In game and Post Match debate
      Oct 28, 2014 06:57:49 pm













      'Celebration of the 96' Liverpool Foundation initiative






      Starting XI: Jones, Toure, Lovren, Johnson, Manquillo, Henderson, Lucas, Coutinho, Markovic, Lambert, Borini

      Subs: Mignolet, Skrtel, Moreno, Lallana, Can, Balotelli, Rossiter

      Jordan Henderson will assume the role of Liverpool captain when the Reds welcome Swansea City to Anfield in tonight's League Cup fourth-round clash.

      Brendan Rodgers has made wholesale changes to his starting XI for the tie - with Lazar Markovic, Philippe Coutinho and Fabio Borini amongst a host of players who return to the team.

      The manager makes nine alterations to the line-up he sent out to face Hull City during the Reds' 0-0 draw in the Barclays Premier League on Saturday. Only Dejan Lovren and Javier Manquillo retain starting berths.

      Brad Jones has been handed his first start of the season, coming in to replace Simon Mignolet in goal for the 8pm kick-off. In front of the Australian, Kolo Toure and Glen Johnson are preferred to Martin Skrtel and Alberto Moreno.

      Coutinho is switched into the team for Adam Lallana, while the No.10's compatriot, Lucas Leiva, comes in for Steven Gerrard to make his fourth start of the current campaign. Henderson begins the match ahead of Emre Can.

      Up front, Borini will feature from the first whistle for only the second time this season as Rodgers fields the Italian alongside summer signing Rickie Lambert, with both strikers eager to claim their first goals of 2014-15.

      Jordan Rossiter, who scored on his debut for the club against Middlesbrough in the last round of the competition, has been named as part of a strong substitutes' bench, which includes Mario Balotelli.

      I like the team, 2 upfront is something we need to try and I like Coutinho getting a start. I think Markovic will play well tonight. Overall I am happy with that team, and Gerrard gets a well deserved rest.

      Very uncomfortable with Johnson at LB though.

      Exactly.

      Plus, I hope that Enrique and Allen aren't again injured :/

      Bit frustrating that we've finally gone to two up top but we haven't given Balotelli a chance but at least it gives both Borini and Lambert a chance to impress.

      Is Markovic playing as a 10 today? Or is a bit more traditional 4-4-2 with Coutinho on the left?

      Good line -up but slightly disappointed young Rossiter hasn't started, thought he did enough on his debut to warrant a starting berth tonight, 

      Anyhoo I hope Fabio,  Lazar,  and the old f**ker Lambert do well score one or two and give themselves a massive confidence boost,

      If I'm honest I just want to see us win without any shenanigans like going to another penalty shootout,  don't think I could bare another of those nights anytime soon,

      3-1 Redmen

      Good chance for Markovic to show what he can do over a full match, and some of the fringe players a chance to impress.

      Still, don't agree with changing keepers unless of injury personally.

      On the stream I'm watching they had us set up in a 4-2-3-1. Borini and Markovic out wide with Coutinho in the middle behind Lambert.
