Flanagan Carragher Agger Enrique
Henderson Suarez Downing
Bench: Doni, Meireles, Kuyt, Spearing, Ngog, Kelly, Robinson
A few major surprises in the eleven---José Enrique's presence is probably the biggest, and we can at least feign shock that Luis Suarez makes the starting lineup after only returning to the club last week. John Flanagan comes into the side with Martin Kelly on the bench, and Charlie Adam makes his expected debut alongside Lucas in central midfield. Given my previous leanings, a bit surprised that Jordan Henderson gets the start, particularly when it pushes Dirk Kuyt to the bench. Raul Meireles makes his return to the squad after missing most of the preseason preparations through injury, along with Kuyt, Kelly, Jay Spearing, David Ngog, and Jack Robinson. No Maxi, though, and Fabio Aurelio's also missing.
