Liverpool welcome Manchester City to Anfield this Sunday in a clash that could give clear indicators as to where the reds are headed this season. A disappointing opening day defeat at the hands of West Brom has heaped pressure on Rodgers to clam three points from arguably the best side in British football today.
The pressure is on.
Rodgers must get the tactics right. He must have luck on his side. His players must play their best.
But he also has to pick a starting 11 to be reckoned with.
If I were him (and to some extent I'm glad I'm not), the team walking out of the tunnel early Sunday afternoon would look like this.
