STEVEN GERRARD'S ANFIELD FAREWELL ENDS IN DEFEAT TO CRYSTAL PALACE 3-1...

Wednesday, October 2, 2013

LUCAS BANNED. SHOULD TOURE START IN MIDFIELD V CRYSTAL PALACE?

Following Lucas Leiva's 5th yellow card in 6 games for Liverpool, the defensive midfielder will miss Saturday's home game against Crystal Palace. The question is, who should replace him for this important game against Ian Hollaway's battling team.

The most obvious answer is to move Jordan Henderson into central midfield alongside Captain Steven Gerrard.

However, I would make a case for the outstanding Kolo Toure to start in the middle for this particular game.

The Ivorian has been a real addition to the Liverpool team this Season already. He is defensively excellent, good in the air and on the ground and also good going forward.

He maybe the perfect foil for Steven Gerard and Brendan Rodgers for this game to nullify any threats from Palace on Saturday.

What do you think would be the best midfield partnership this weekend?

  1. I'd like toure to start despite lucas's availability and show liverpool that they have been missing a physical presence in midfield. Lucas needs a direct competition and Gerrard he needs some bench time

  3. Agger is a better option. A ball player and good going forward with a defensive mindset.

  4. It is either Joe Allen or Henderson to replace Lucas.

  5. Interesting point. Toure has shown great steadiness and nouse. Hendo has been flapping around to little effect. Would like to see Alberto given a run - he's done very well in the junior side.

  6. Thanks Tony, yes I think he's worth a shout in midfield v Crystal Palace.
