With Jose Mourinho having already declared that he will field a weakened side against Liverpool at the Anfield in order to boost their chances of qualifying for the Champions League final, a rare opportunity beckons Brendan Rodger’s men where they can virtually seal the Premier League with a win over title rivals Chelsea. Having such a backdrop let us have a look to what is the line up Brendan Rodgers will possibly field this weekend against Chelsea.
Simon Mignolet: There can be absolutely no question on the selection of Simon Mignolet. Having been a revelation at Liverpool ever since he replaced Pepe Reina, the fact that he does not commit any errors at crucial times like his predecessor means that Liverpool have a really dependable goalkeeper in their ranks.
Glen Johnson: Despite not having the best of seasons at Liverpool, the right back is a class of his own and is indeed one of the best in going forward. Also a solid player defensively there cannot be any doubt that Glen Johnson will be in the line up against Chelsea.
Matin Skrtel: The Slovak has really risen a lot in stature this season. While at the start of the season he was considered as a talented but an erratic centre back he has now redeemed himself by cutting out the silly mistakes in his game. The big burly centre half who also scores his fair share of goals is a shoo in for the game against Chelsea.
Mamadou Sakho: The big defensive buy for Brendan Rodgers from PSG is looking like a crucial hog for Liverpool in the last and most crucial lap of the Premier League race. While this young defender has not had the best of seasons he will be trusted by Brendan Rodgers for this big game.
Jon Flanagan: This youngster has definitely risen up his game which ensured that Liverpool did not miss the likes of Jose Enrique. While he has been brilliant, his impressive performances has somewhat been hidden due to the sterling performances by the likes of Sterling and Henderson. This young wingback will be given yet another opportunity to impress.
