1) What does the back line look like given the fun permutations of injuries and not-quite-fit personnel available to Brendan Rodgers?

2) In the absence of both Luis Suarez and poor sweet Philippe Coutinho, what's going on up top?

3) Does anyone get rested in preparation for meeting Manchester United in the League Cup on Wednesday?

4) Who scores?

5) Will Brendan Rodgers use one of his substitutions on Steven Gerrard?

Bonus: Southampton was the manufacturing home of the Spitfire, the classic British World War II fighter plane. In a previous life, which Liverpool players would have been flying aces? Things to consider: aircraft nose art is to pilots what extensive tattooing is to football players; players with 1940s hair cut; brave young Englishmen.
