Liverpool failed to register their third consecutive win in the premier league as rigid Hull CIty defense meant that both teams settled with a point.
The merseysiders have yet to click upfront mainly because of the absence of Sturridge but it is evident that they player better with two strikers upfront.
No matter how ineffective Mario and Rickie are, they both helped each other well and it helped the team when BR changed the system after an hour against Hull.
Reds have to play Newcastle in the PL next weekend and before that it is a good chance for them to test Lambo and Balo upfront again in a diamond formation against Swansea in the capital one cup.
Swansea are level on points with Liverpool but ahead on goal difference and Reds need to step up big time.
Expect key stars to start for Liverpool sicne Rodgers claimed he wanted to win a trophy this season and the Capital One Cup is arguably the one he must be targeting.
Sterling should be rested and only brought on if needed. Can played really well against Hull but should not be dragged much as he has just returned from injury and may find himself on the bench.
Here is Liverpool’s probable XI vs Swansea.
