Drop Toure? How Liverpool Should Line Up Versus Arsenal

Not many expected Liverpool to trounce Arsenal 5-1 a couple of outings ago in the Premier League up at Anfield, and not many are expecting a score line like that tomorrow afternoon as the two face off in the FA Cup. Liverpool fans will be the confident bunch though after said result, and they have reason to be. But how should Brendan Rodgers line his side up? Here’s my thoughts on it.

Liverpool don’t have the Champions League to plan for, so I think they will be full strength. That means Simon Mignolet in goal with Flanagan at right-back.

In the middle I would expect to see Martin Skrtel and Daniel Agger as Kolo Toure has had a tough couple of weeks, and on the left Aly Cissokho will probably be the man to fill the role. 

In the middle Steven Gerrard has to be the first on the team sheet and I would prbably stick Jordan Henderson next to him, with Philippe Coutinho in the more advanced role.

I thinnk the game will be won in the wide areas, as Raheem Sterling and Luis Suarez, who I would start on the flanks, will be attacking feeble-looking Arsenal full-backs.

Up top I think Daniel Sturridge has to be unleashed, though if Iago Aspas is available I would give him a run out.

Liverpool fans, what would your team look like?
