Predicted Liverpool XI for next season - Including Can and Moreno

Alberto Moreno Perez

Here's how Liverpool's starting eleven could look at the start of next season.

Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers has put his money where his mouth is with two signings before the World Cup starts next week.

The Anfield boss is also working away on additional deals, as he looks to get the Reds in great shape and avoid the chaos of the transfer market after the tournament in Brazil.

Liverpool fans are right to start getting excited and we’ve taken a look at how the side may shape up for next season including a new signing and reported ones.

GK – Simon Mignolet

Mignolet may struggle to get a lot of first team game time for Belgium because of Thibaut Courtois’ form but he’s definitely the number one at Anfield.

RB – Glen Johnson

Johnson will feature for England at the World Cup and he’ll more than likely start at right-back ahead of Jon Flanagan.

CB – Martin Skrtel

Skrtel was one of the best defenders in the Premier League last season. His ability to clear the ball and take control under pressure is one of his best traits.

CB – Mamadou Sakho

Sakho will definitely be better off for having a season in English football under his belt. Weaknesses were exposed towards the end of last season but a good tournament with France should fill him with confidence.

LB – Alberto Moreno

Liverpool are tipped to complete a deal for Sevilla’s Alberto Moreno and he’d more than likely start as the primary left-back for Rodgers.

RM – Raheem Sterling

Fortunately for Sterling, his red card against Ecuador won’t count against him in the World Cup. He’s possibly the quickest player Liverpool have and vital for the counter attack.

DM – Emre Can

Can could be installed in front of the back four regularly by Rodgers. He’s the man who will have to hunt down and stop the opposition attacks.

CM – Jordan Henderson

Henderson deserves to start in the Liverpool team next season. He’s an extremely versatile player but could be urged to pull the strings in the middle.

CM – Steven Gerrard

There’s no doubt at all that if Gerrard is fit, he starts.

LM – Daniel Sturridge

Sturridge should be started ahead of Philippe Coutinho and potential new signing Adam Lallana. When Sturridge is started on the left, always expect him to drift forward.

ST – Luis Suarez

The same old reports suggesting Suarez could be on his way to Real Madrid have resurfaced. However, Liverpool will keep him and Rodgers will start him.
