Brendan Rodgers has to make some changes to the Liverpool side for the Norwich game on Wednesday. The Liverpool manage admitted that he was to blame for the defeat against Hull and now he has a perfect opportunity to make up for it with Norwich visiting Anfield.
Against Hull, Rodgers was without the injured Daniel Sturridge and Coutinho only came on in the second half. Those are two of Liverpool’s best players and it is never easy for a manager to be without them.
We now look at the four changes that Rodgers needs to make for the Norwich game if Liverpool are to win this match and win it well:
1) Replace Kolo Toure with Mamadou Sakho
Kolo Toure had his worst game in a Liverpool shirt against Hull and to make it worse he picked up a hip injury in that game which he should be recovered from by the time Norwich arrive. But based on his poor game, Rodgers needs to drop him and bring in Sakho.
Sakho has not done much wrong since he arrived at Liverpool from PSG and one would have thought his performance for France in their World Cup qualifier against Ukraine would have earned him a spot in the Liverpool starting lineup.
With the Liverpool defence leaking goals regularly, Rodgers has to find his best central pairing and stick with it. Martin Skrtel had done very well for Liverpool up until the Hull game. He needs to be given one more chance against Norwich to prove that he is still one of the best defenders in the league right now.
