The former Reds striker has offered his thoughts on who Brendan Rodgers could pick at Loftus Road.
That news has left boss Brendan Rodgers with a few issues to ponder when it comes to team selection - but former Liverpool striker Aldridge believes he has the solution for him.
Plan A, as far as the 56-year-old is confirmed, is to play Steven Gerrard in behind Mario Balotelli as a no.10:
I reckon Stevie G to play in behind balotelli or lambert lallana and sterling wide.Allen Henderson midfield,might solve a monthly problem??— John Aldridge (@Realaldo474) October 18, 2014
It has been many years since the Reds skipper played in such an advanced role for an extended period but the 34-year-old demonstrated glimpses of magic when Balotelli came on against West Brom, when Gerrard was indeed allowed to roam forward.
Aldridge's plan B involves Rickie Lambert going up front as he did against the Baggies. Lambert's work-rate certainly outweighs that of Balotelli and a struggling QPR defence could be the perfect target for the 32-year-old to break his duck against.
Interestingly, forgotten Liverpool forward Fabio Borini has, once again, remained forgotten when it comes to team suggestions. Could Rodgers have a surprise up his sleeve?
