Liverpool head into a Sunday FA Cup clash with Blue Square Bet Premier side Mansfield with plenty of options.

Via an article from The Guardian, Reds boss Brendan Rodgers left several hints about selection for the game, including news that Steven Gerrard would be rested, Daniel Sturridge would not start but would be used and that he intended to use the whole squad in an effort to rest key players.
