Predicted Liverpool line-up to play Bolton: Lallana and Markovic to start

Anfield Pitch

Here is the starting line-up we expect Liverpool to play in their FA Cup fourth round match against Bolton Wanderers this weekend:

Liverpool continued their fine recent form by drawing 1-1 with league leaders Chelsea in the first leg of the Capital One Cup semi-final.

And now Reds manager Brendan Rodgers must turn his attention from one cup competition to another, with Liverpool hosting Bolton Wanderers in the fourth round of the FA Cup on Saturday.

Liverpool are currently eighth in the top flight while their next opponents Bolton are 14th in the Championship, but as is so often the case in the FA Cup, form and league standings could go out of the window.

Bolton’s last match was a 2-1 win against Sheffield Wednesday and they will be hoping to cause an almighty shock at Anfield.

For that reason, Rodgers will be thinking long and hard about his team selection, with games coming thick and fast and Liverpool’s squad needing to be used wisely, especially with the Europa League just around the corner.

Below is the starting line-up we predict Liverpool will go with on Saturday:

Predicted Liverpool starting XI: Mignolet, Can, Skrtel, Sakho, Manquillo, Markovic, Henderson, Lucas, Lallana, Coutinho, Lambert
