      Anfield waiting for the battle











      Starting XI: Mignolet, Can, Skrtel, Lovren, Henderson, Allen, Moreno, Markovic, Lallana, Coutinho, Sterling

      Subs: Ward, Toure, Lambert, Sturridge, Borini, Balotelli, Williams

      Brendan Rodgers has made four changes to his Liverpool line-up for today's Barclays Premier League clash with Manchester City.

      Jordan Henderson returns to captain the side at Anfield, with Kolo Toure dropping to the bench and Emre Can restored to the Reds' three-man defence.

      Lazar Markovic is eligible after being suspended for the midweek European tie in Istanbul and is selected in place of Jordon Ibe on the right flank.

      And in attack, Philippe Coutinho and Adam Lallana are chosen to support Raheem Sterling. Mario Balotelli and Daniel Sturridge are named among the substitutes.

      Tough game, coming on the back of Thursday night's defeat, may have to settle for a draw. Although obviously hope the Reds prove me wrong and get back to winning ways.

      No Sakho is a big blow. Good to see Danny benched, might have been a risk to start him after 105 minutes on Thursday and he deserves the bench for the sh*te he produced on Thursday.

      Big chance for Markovic today as well with Ibe injured.

      Bit strange that we have 4 strikers on the bench and none in the starting XI. Oh well.

      Come on you redmen!

      Ibe hobbled off against Besiktas so that may be why he is out.

      Interesting team. Markovic needs to start taking these chances he is getting.

      ^^ How did Ramsey photo bomb the dressing room?

      On current form, you have to say Sterling deserves the starting berth up top.

      Not confirmed mate but he did come off with a knock against Besiktas. And considering we've got four strikers on the bench surely Ibe would been there if he was fit.

      We are under strength City are at full strength. This will he hugely difficult. Hendo and Allen are key to any success today they have to keep pressure on Toure and stop him roaming forward he drives the whole team. If we can contain Toure we have a chance at beating this lot.

      Don't see why everyone is so surprised at our bench.

      That's what shitty Thursday night Europa League football does folks.

      Very strange team, even stranger bench.

      I suppose with the midfielders we've got out we're really struggling to field a balanced team/bench.

      Huge game, 3 points here could make us favourites for top 4, no points puts at the bottom of the chasing pack again. Question would be would you take a draw before a ball is kicked, I probably would after just over 2 days since our last game.

      Not confident at all on this one.
