We are only a few hours away from the big kickoff of the Premier League season against Sunderland. In a new feature for the coming season for, we will be sharing with each other, who we think will be in the starting lineup come kickoff time.

With all the new signings Liverpool have made this summer, it will be interesting to see who actually gets to start today. Reina will certainly be in goal today. As for the right-back, Kenny Dalglish said yesterday that they would see how Johnson is this morning before they decide if he will start. My guess is Johnson may not be ready to play today and that could see Kelly starting at right-back.

Carragher and Agger should form our central defence partnership. The choice of left-back will be interesting as Dalglish has new boy Jose Enrique ready to play but will he throw him straight into the starting lineup? Fabio Aurelio is just returning to full fitness so he stands a chance of starting. My guess is that Dalglish will start with Aurelio.

When it comes to the midfield, it all depends on what formation you think Dalglish will use today. My guess is that he will opt to play with Stewart Downing on the left, Henderson on the right, Adam and Lucas in the middle. That leaves Carroll and Kuyt playing upfront as I only see Suarez starting off the bench.

Who do you think will start against Sunderland?

    Henderson does not deserve a start, he has not proved anything to me in the pre season. Aquaman is the main man in the midfielh . but i agree with the other choices.

    Barney’s line up looks brilliant. But maybe kk will start dirk for Luis, but I doubt it…..I’m bouncing off the walls waiting for this…..Ynwa!
    Hope aqua’s settles and his agent is beaten to sensible thought.

    Carroll is having a blinder , his goal should have stood , it was a beautiful piece of centre forward play , he took it down & buried it in 3 touches under pressure , Christian Vieri couldnt have done it better , Fuckin referee robbed us on that one !
    What about Downing ?
    Fucking beautiful run & shot , would have been an early contender for goal of the season if that went in instead of cracking the bar so hard it hasnt stopped wobbling yet !
    Hendo hasnt misplaced a pass , Lucas is having a blinder as is Adam & Young #Flanagan is justifying Kennys faith , hes havin a great game as is the very composed Agger .
    What about Suarez ?
    He should be chasing a hat trick by now , t’was a beautiful wee finish at the near post for his goal & he has been his usual electric self with his movement off tha ball giving them conniptions at the back … Less said about his penalty the better !
    All in all boys ?
    We are playing some very commanding & domineering football , its a beautiful game when its played by us like that !
    Fuck Barca & Fuck that robbing bastard referee !
    If it wasnt for him we would be at least 3-0 up by now !
