Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers will be hoping his side can carry forward the momentum they created in the win against West Ham over the weekend, as they prepare to face Bolton in an FA Cup replay.
It might frustrate the boss that the Reds have another fixture to play in an already busy schedule, but it’s a chance for fringe players to show what they’re made of and make a claim to a starting place on a more frequent basis.
Daniel Sturridge will be pushing for a starting role after making a long awaited comeback from injury in the game against the Hammers, grabbing Liverpool’s second in the 2-0 win. However, Rodgers will be wary of starting him before he’s fully match fit.
It’s important for the sake of their Premier League schedule that they get through this game in normal time, but it’s not going to be easy with Bolton having the home advantage and a packed house putting Rodgers’ players under pressure from the very first whistle.
Here’s the team Rodgers could go with for the game.
Liverpool: Mignolet, Can, Skrtel, Sakho, Moreno, Markovic, Henderson, Allen, Coutinho, Sterling, Sturridge
