Liverpool Squad Against Hearts: Rodgers Separates Big Names
Liverpool faces Hearts in Europa qualifiers while Rodgers leaves some stars behind at Anfield when they visit Tynecastle for the first leg.
Rodgers leaves some stars like Luis Suarez, Captain Gerrard, Glen Johnson and Martin Skrtel behind as Liverpool visits Hearts for the first leg of play offs. Also isolated from the squad was left-back Jose Enrique who failed to recover from his knee injury while Joe Cole was out as well. This makes majority of first team defense out of squad against Hearts while Agger will lead the defense line as Danish Captain will feature in the game.
Absence of Gerrard will gift Carragher the arm band.
Provisional squad: Reina, Jones, Kelly, Agger, Carragher, Coates, Flanagan, Shelvey, Lucas, Adam, Allen, Henderson, Spearing, Downing, Borini, Carroll, Wilson, Robinson, Sterling, Eccleston.
Predicted Starting XI:
Reina, Kely, Agger, Carrager, Flanagan, Shelvey, Lucas, Allen, Downing, Borini, Carroll
Second Leg At Anfield
Liverpool boss Rodgers gives Adam Morgan a start while he rests Andy Carroll which makes his transfer possibility more and more clear. Additionally other players like Joe Cole, Charlie Adam and Jay Spearing who has been linked away from Anfield are left out of the squad while surprisingly Downing has been dropped to left back.
Reina, Kelly, Carragher, Skrtel, Downing; Gerrard, Allen, Henderson; Shelvey, Morgan, Suarez.
