PHOTO: Is this Liverpool's starting line-up for Hull City clash?

Friday's training session seems to indicate that Liverpool will make three changes from the side that started the 3-0 defeat against Real Madrid.

Liverpool training pre-Hull City


Liverpool are in action against Hull City in the Premier League this weekend as they look to put Wednesday night's disappointing result against Real Madrid behind them, after the European Champions strolled to victory with a 3-0 win at Anfield.

With the Reds now entering their third game of seven in a 21 day period, it will be of little surprise to see changes to the starting line-up as Brendan Rodgers looks to freshen up his side, and keep them competitive on all four fronts, with a League Cup game against Swansea City at Anfield just around the corner on Tuesday.

The photograph seem to indicate those in orange bibs will start the game tomorrow. If the orange bib theory is correct, this would be the Reds' starting line-up tomorrow against Hull City:

Mignolet, Moreno, Lovren, Skrtel, Manquillo, Gerrard, Allen, Can, Lallana, Sterling, Balotelli.

One of the big questions surrounding the Reds starting line-up for tomorrow's game will be whether Rodgers will keep putting his faith in striker Mario Balotelli, who has come in for some criticism in recent days for his poor form, attitude, and swapping shirts with Pepe at half-time against Real Madrid.

Glen Johnson, Jordan Henderson and Philippe Coutinho are not in orange, which means they are likely to drop to the bench this weekend with Javier Manquillo, Adam Lallana and Emre Can all coming into the side.

Both Henderson and Coutinho were replaced on the hour mark against Madrid, in what would logically be a ploy to keep the pair as fresh as possible for the weekend but it may be for the fixture schedule overall. Both Can and Lallana showed promise during their cameos on Wednesday - whilst Manquillo has already seen a fair amount of first team action this season by filling in for Glen Johnson.

One doubts the line-up will have many changes from the one outlined here, if any.
