Liverpool play their final game before the start of the Premier League and Swindown are their opponents today.
The merseysiders defeated Helsinki in their latest friendly 0-2 thanks to goals from Belgian international Divock Origi and Brazilian playmaker Philippe Coutinho.
Brendan Rodgers’ rested Liverpool’s two marquee signings of the summer Roberto Firmino and Christian Benteke against Helsinki. Expect the duo to make their debut against Swindon today.
Rodgers must look to start the strongest possible side for this game so as to prepare the team well for the PL opener against Stoke City next weekend.
However, few players who started the game yesterday might be rested and may come on the field of play in the second half.
Henderson and Milner have probably guaranteed their starting place for the game against Stoke and now Can, Lucas and Allen will battle it out for the final midfield position.
Coutinho and Firmino should start behind Benteke to form the strongest attack. Here is Liverpool’s probable XI vs Swindon.
