Liverpool take on Tottenham in Sunday and there is already a lot of talk as to who is going to be playing right-back fro Liverpool during that game and have the responsibility of marking Gareth Bale. Personally, I think Bale is overrated but he does have lots of pace which is always a threat.
Now Liverpool have been struggling with injuries to key right-backs, Glen Johnson and Martin Kelly. Johnson is still out injured but Kelly could be back to face Spurs but will he be fit enough to start the game on Sunday and contend with Bale’s pace?
Martin Skrtel has been filling in at right-back over the last couple of games and Kenny Dalglish has praised the centre-back for playing in an unfamiliar position. Dalglish said: “He’s been playing out of position but it’s been no problem for him. He came on against Bolton and was very, very comfortable.”
There is also a chance that young Flanagan could be could back into the starting lineup at right-back. “Hopefully I can get back in the team – that’s my target,” Flanagan said.
“We’ve got a few injuries at the moment so maybe I’ll get another chance soon. When I do get back in there I’ll have to show what I can do.
“Kells is back in training so it all depends what Kenny wants to do but if he needs me at Tottenham I’ll be ready.”
Who do you think should start at right-back against Spurs on Sunday?
