Friends Of Liverpool

After Wednesday’s 2-2 thriller against Arsenal at the Emirates, Liverpool boss, Brendan Rodgers, was quizzed about the possible starting line-up for Liverpool against Man City at the Etihad this coming Sunday.

Brendan Rodgers, the straight-talking Ulsterman, commented: “Yes, Jamie is playing.”

Brendan Rodgers has previously spoken of the need of leadership in the back four at Liverpool and Carras’ re-introduction to the starting eleven has been successful, certainly against Norwich in a 5-0 victory and a commendable display in drawing with Arsenal’s fire-power last Wednesday night.

We may have drawn 2-2 but, looking at the game again earlier today, without Carraghers’ defending, we could easily have lost the match.

Where does this leave Martin Skrtel?

The Slovakian defender is solid, steady and uncompromising but seemingly lacks the leadership qualities that Brendan Rodgers is looking for in his back-line.

Danny Agger is a more graceful centre-half, good on the ball and good in attack, yet the reality is that Liverpool are letting in far too many goals this Season and last.

Jamie Carragher may have reached his 35th birthday but he is still a vital member of the squad and first-team this Season.

Expect him to galvanise the Liverpool defence against Man City on Sunday.
