No Firmino – Liverpool’s Probable Starting XI vs Stoke

Firmino Liverpool Ian AyreLiverpool will kick start their new season where they ended the last one, against Stoke City away from home.

The Merseysiders were ripped apart as the Potters humiliated them 6-1 on the final day of last PL campaign. The Reds are a much better side now having secured several key signings this summer.

As far as the team news is concerned, expect majority of the new arrivals to start for the Anfield club at the weekend. However, playmaker signing from Hoffenheim Roberto Firmino might be on the bench and England international Adam Lallana may get the nod to start.

Firmino only featured against Swindon for Liverpool whereas Lallana was arguablyone of the most impressive stars in the pre-season. The former Southampton star must start with Coutinho in attack.

Christian Benteke has also played one game for the Reds but the Belgian international has ample PL experience and should start upfront as the lone striker.

Here is Liverpool’s probable starting XI vs Stoke.

    now where does Emre Can fit in ? would be better replacing the reliable Lucas with him in there then we defnitly will win ynwa

    My personal opinion..

    Moreno should be replaced by Gomez.
    Mignolet by Bogden
    Skrtel by Toure or Lovren
    Couthino by Firmino

    Lallana play left and Ibe plays right with crosses coming in for Benteke..
    any loose ball in front of the box could be hammered in by Firmino , Milner & Hendo..

    My own opinions are these; Ibe should play right wing in order to deliver crossing to benteke and Lallana on the bench for Countiho. Milner,Hendo and Lucas to hold the midfield. Moreno, skrtel, Sakho and Clyne at defending part

    Forget the last game of 2014/15 season and pick any fit 11 to 16 players for Sunday. If they cannot beat Stoke sack Rodgers!
