We believe the veteran captain will likely play a similar role from the bench as he did against Swansea, which proved to be incredibly effective.AttackWith Raheem Sterling recently converted to a wing-back that has allowed Rodgers to field Adam Lallana, Philippe Coutinho and Daniel Sturridge. This looks likely to be the case again.Liverpool fans, how do you think you’ll line up? Comment below…Liverpool v Manchester United is LIVE and EXCLUSIVE on talkSPORT, Sunday from 1pm.
