How Liverpool Will Line Up Against Sunderland

Giving Liverpool the thumbs-up: but will Rodgers and the Reds be smiling at struggling Sunderland on Sunday though?

Liverpool travel to the Stadium of Light on Sunday afternoon to take on a Sunderland side currently rock bottom of the Premier League. Brendan Rodgers’ men are looking to get back to winning ways after a recent blip in form, and the Northern Irishman has a number of tricky selection dilemmas facing him for the trip to the North-East.

However, the good news for Rodgers is that one of those difficult decisions revolves around the long-awaited Premier League return of mercurial front man Luis Suarez, who made his first competitive start for the Reds in Wednesday night’s 1-0 loss at archrivals Manchester United in the Capital One Cup third round, and who will miss out to make way for the Uruguayan’s top-flight comeback.

Elsewhere, though, the Liverpool manager needs to decide what formation his men should adopt on Wearside after his experimentation with three at the back at Old Trafford in midweek, who his centre-backs will be, and whether Spaniard Jose Enrique keeps his place in the starting lineup after his lack of concentration allowed Javier Hernandez to net United’s winner in the League Cup.

And so this is how we expect the Merseysiders to line up against Sunderland this weekend in a 3-4-3 formation once again, as at Old Trafford on Wednesday.
