How Liverpool Should Line-up Against Crystal Palace At Selhurst Park

Liverpool take on Palace in what appears to be a revenge fixture with the memory of the capitulation at Selhurst Park still fresh in the minds of the Liverpool supporters. Here is a look at how the Reds might line-up :-

Raheem Sterling
Raheem Sterling

Formation :- 4-2-3-1

Simon Mignolet
The Belgian shot-stopper put in better performances in the last couple of games as a the Liverpool keeper. Mignolet will look to continue the good form into this weekend. Looking more assertive and confident with every passing game – Mignolet will look to cement his number 1 spot.

Javier Manquillo
The young Spanish full-back is one of the better signings the Reds have made this summer. Madrid-born Manquillois rock solid in defence. Why Brendan Rodgers’ persists with Glen Johnson is beyond the comprehension of many Liverpool fans.

Kolo Toure
Probably the best Liverpool player on the pitch in Madrid, Toure’s recent performances is proof enough that the Ivorian has still a lot to offer. With Lovren far from the player Liverpool signed from Southampton, Rodgers’ ought to opt for Toure.

Martin Skrtel
Arguably, Liverpool’s best defender. The Slovakian will resume in the heart of defence after the international game. Still a bit rash in the odd tackle, Skrtel will have to be at hs best if Liverpool have to save their stuttering season.

Alberto Moreno
The Spaniard looks like a full-back who will serve Liverpool for years to come. A pacey, fearless full-back with a lethal left foot. Moreno has all the makings of a top-class Premier League full-back for years to come.

Steven Gerrard
The Liverpool skipper will be well rested during the international game and will resume in the Liverpool midfield. If the Reds do make it to the top-4 from here on in, the skipper will have a big role to play.

Emre Can
Fearless and powerful – the young German is a midfield-powerhouse in the making. The youngster adds another dimension to the Reds midfield while being solid defensively and putting in a shift for the team off the ball.

Raheem Sterling
After a bright start to the season, the teenager’s form has tailed off in recent weeks. His explosive pace and trickery will be key when Liverpool take on a Palace side that will e content to sit back and defend all throughout the game.

Adam Lallana
The English midfielder had a rather fruitful international break with impactful performances for the 3 Lions. The two-footed creative midfielder will play a key role in unlocking a tight Palace defence.

Phillipe Coutinho
The twinkle-toed Brazilian has shown glimpses of his best form in the recent weeks. At his best down the middle behind the striker or down the left, Coutinho will have a point to prove after being subbed off quite early against Chelsea.

Rickie Lambert
As Brendan Rodgers said that the 32 year old former Saints striker will have a big role to play in the coming weeks. With Sturridge still out injured and Balotelli injured too, Liverpool will look to their new number 9 to spearhead the attck.
