For the past couple of months, Liverpool have been beset with injury problems, and the Reds’ current troubles at full-back are well documented.
Jon Flanagan has reestablished himself as a strong contender in Brendan Rodgers’ starting XI, while on-loan Aly Cissokho has picked up his form of late. Just as well, given that they are just about the only senior options Liverpool have at full-back.
