After a breath taking 5-4 win over Norwich City away from home in the Premier League, Liverpool will host Stoke City at Anfield in the second leg of the Capital One Cup semi final tie.
The Reds have advantage after beating the Potters 1-0 at the Britannia Stadium and hold stronger cards at home to qualify for the final for the first time since winning the competition in 2012 under Kenny Dalglish.
As far as Liverpool’s team news is concerned, not many changes should be expected in the starting XI that played against the Canaries at the weekend.
In form Robero Firmino should start as the lone striker (False No. 9) up front. Benteke will probably find himself on the bench again. Adam Lallana should return to the starting XI in place of Ibe. The former Southampton star scored a last minute winner to earn Liverpool three points vs Norwich.
Here is Liverpool’s probable starting XI vs Stoke City.
