Liverpool v Norwich

Good to see Lallana back in there and get a nifty goal. Would anticipate he is in the XI for Norwich.

Minoglet in goal as usual.

Defensive 4 or 3? And has Sakho won a spot in the starting line-up?

My guess is that Rodgers sticks with his usual 4: Clyne, Lovren, Skrtel, and Gomez. With League Cup and Europa Cup games coming up, will see Sakho in those matches. If Lovren has any more howlers than Sakho will be plugged in.

Midfield three: Milner, Lucas, Firmino/Can/Moreno?

Firmino didn't play in the recent Europa league match. Is he in the doghouse? Or was he being rested for Norwich? Am figuring Firmino is going to start but he would be one of the first to be substituted in the 2nd half if he looks tired or is ineffective. Who do you put in? Can or Moreno? Am not sure Moreno has surpassed Can in the depth chart so Can probably gets the call when Firmino goes out. If Lucas is slowing down, Moreno gets in the game too.

Front three: Benteke, Lallana, Coutinho.

Ings comes in if they need fresh energy on the attack; however, might Sturridge get in? Maybe. From the article, seems Henderson might be need a little more time.

UPDATE: 1-1 was the verdict on Sunday against Norwich. In reading game accounts, the team missed opportunities and the equalizer from Norwich was a goalie blunder. Will be interesting to see who the Brodge sends out for the League Cup match this week as Carlisle is a League Two (4th tier of the pyramid) club. Obviously, it is too soon to make any final verdict on the 2015 summer signings but here is where we are at now:
James Milner - giving them good minutes but maybe getting worn down
Danny Ings - with the goal against Norwich, he may have won the opportunity for more minutes
Adam Bogdan - haven't seen him in action, maybe he will get the start against Carlisle
Joe Gomez - has gotten a lot of minutes early but has shown some of his youth and inexperience and so maybe moved to the substitute's bench and get starter minutes in League Cup/Europa Cup matches
Roberto Firmino - so far hasn't lived up to the expectations
Nathaniel Clyne - doing well
Christian Benteke - doing well but needs more support up top
