Confirmed Liverpool-XI: Forgotten man returns; 'Sensational' attacker ignored; boring midfield; surprise start for Bogdan

Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers has named a very strong team for tonight's Cup clash with Carlisle United, and judging by the players selected, it looks like the Reds are reverting back to a 433, with Danny Ings as a lone striker.

FULL TEAM: Bogdan, Clyne, Skrtel, Lovren, Moreno, Can, Milner, Allen, Lallana, Firmino, Ings

SUBS: Fulton, Coutinho, Gomez, Origi, Brannagan, Ibe, Rossiter

* Six changes from the team that line-up against Norwich.

* Daniel Sturridge isn't even in the squad, which is (IMO) a good thing. I expected to see him on the bench (to come on and get some more match fitness), so hopefully this doesn't mean he's injured again (!)

* Great to see Bogdan come in for Mignolet. If the Hungarian has a good game then he should keep his place for the Aston Villa game on Saturday.

* Sakho and Lucas are not in the squad, which suggest they're being rested. Both players had good games against Norwich at the weekend.

* Joe Allen makes his return from injury, but a midfield three of Allen, Milner, and Can is as turgid and creatively bereft as it's possible to get.

* With Coutinho out, it's a great opportunity to play as the team's number-10, but if it's a 433, he'll probably be out on the left.

* On the subject of 'sensational' Coutinho: after creating only 3 chances in six league games, he deserves to be dropped.

* What happens if Lovren has a superb game? Using the merit system, will he start against Villa on Saturday?

Possible line-ups:

--------------- Bogdan

Clyne --- Skrtel -- Lovren ---- Moreno
--------------- Allen
--------- Milner --- Can
----- Lallana -------- Firmino
-------------- Ings


--------------- Bogdan
------ Can --- Skrtel -- Lovren
Clyne --- Milner - Allen --- Moreno
------------- Lallana
-------- Firmino -- Ings
