Is This Liverpool’s Best XI?

Liverpool have done a fair deal of business this summer, bringing in players to strengthen most of the positions of the club. But among them the most striking feature would be Rodgers’ buying five defensive players and it clearly highlights the manager’s inclination on the defensive aspect of the game. The Merseyside club’s record till now also says the same as they have registered three straight cleansheets. Although, it would be difficult to predict Liverpool’s team formation throughout the tournament, especially because they have as many as five centre backs, we try to formulate a line up for the Kops this season.

Simon Mignolet– It is not without a reason that Rodgers had decided to part ways with the veteran Reina and play him instead. Already he has proven his worth to the club and if not for him, the three cleansheets would have been elusive.

Jose Enrique– Has showed time and again that he is a quality player in the left back position. His attacking instincts would always keep the defence of the oppositions alert.

Daniel Agger– The new vice captain of the club, the Dane has always been a pillar at the back for his side. But with so many defenders around, he has to maintain a steady performance all through.

Mamadou Sakho– Some real fight would go on for this place although we feel that Sakho would edge past Toure and Skrtel mainly for the reputation that he brings with him to the side.

Glen Johnson- The 29-year old right back has been excellent for both his club and country alike and would look to continue his good work.

Lucas- The Brazilian has a tremendous effect on the central midfield and without his services Liverpool look like a pale shadow on themselves.

Steven Gerrard– The captain has always been leading from the front and even at this age has a big role to play in the side.

Victor Moses– Rodgers brought him from Chelsea with the sole purpose of employing him in the flanks and his talent may finally be fully utilised at Liverpool. (Although some might prefer Henderson)

Phillipe Coutinho– The darling of the masses, the Brazilian can weave his magic against any defence and would be deployed just behind the striker.

Luis Suarez– Rodgers has already hinted that the Uruguayan would be playing in a wide position and we all know what this man is capable of.

Daniel Sturridge– Has been the highlight of the side in the absence of Suarez. If his good form continues and he manages to remain injury free, then would have a big role to play.
