Liverpool have not been left with much time to dwell on their 0-0 draw with Hull at the weekend as Brendan Rodgers prepares his side to face Swansea at Anfield in the league cup on Tuesday evening. With both sides perhaps opting to shake things up a bit it could be a very different XI fielded by the Reds.
After an eye opening game against Real Madrid midweek, Liverpool will certainly be looking to show those watching what they are really capable of. With the tie coming so quickly after a Champions League game though and with a relatively thin squad, you have to wonder how this will pan out for Brendan Rodgers on Saturday.
It's a rare occasion when ten minutes of a match end up making the bulk of your match report but that's exactly what has happened after Sunday's eventual win over QPR. An own goal from Richard Dunne after an hour of play appeared at one stage to be the only difference between the two sides however mayhem would ensue within the final moments of the game, denying a gutted Harry Redknapp his second win of the season.
Liverpool make the trip to Loftus Road on Sunday as Brendan Rodgers' side aim to pick up where they left off in the league. News of Daniel Sturridge picking up another injury though has left kopites concerned as the Reds look for an alternative option in attack.
Mario Balotelli is obviously the man Brendan will be looking to but in my opinion there's no point playing him unless you forge the team to support him.

After a mammoth session midweek against the might of Middlesbrough the Reds will be hoping things run more smoothly against bitter rivals Everton on Saturday. However, with a run of poor form recently and a real shaky defence, Everton are probably the last team Brendan Rodgers wants to be facing this weekend.
After a somewhat dismal week for Liverpool, manager Brendan Rodgers will be hoping his side can pick themselves up and progress past Middlesbrough in tomorrow night's league cup tie. The two sides have met on numerous occasions and were last drawn against each other in this competition back in 1998!
Liverpool fell to a 3-1 defeat at the hands of Sam Allardyce's West Ham team on Saturday after a ruthless start from the home side. The Reds barely had chance to compose themselves before the Hammers found the back of the net and things quickly went from bad to worse for Brendan Rodgers' side.
Liverpool travel to London on Saturday evening as they aim to thrive off their Champions League win over Ludogorets earlier in the week. Brendan will face Sam Allardyce's West Ham side who currently find themselves 13th in the league.

Tuesday 16th September 2014. Mark it in your diaries because Liverpool are back in the Champions League!

Liverpool face Aston Villa at Anfield on Saturday after an international break that created an injury scare for Jordan Henderson and left Daniel Sturridge unable to feature for the Reds for three weeks.

Alan Pardew has just announced his team for the home game with Leicester City and there's a return for local lad Steven Taylor. The rest of the team is as expected but it's a return for the longest serving player at Newcastle at the moment, but it looks like Mike Williamson may be injured as [...]
Alan Pardew said yesterday that he would make a couple of changes from the team that lost 1-0 at Stoke last Monday night for tomorrows game at Swansea. Gabby Obertan at Gillingham Could get start tomorrow Papiss Cisse could well come into the reckoning and Ayoze Perez scored four goals for a Newcastle team that [.
Alan Pardew picked the team we thought he would pick tonight, with Cabella in the withdrawn striker role and Sissoko and Gouffran on the wings. We would have preferred young Armstrong to have started in the number 10 position but this is still a very strong team we are fielding tonight, with Riviere the [.
Alan Pardew has made two changes to his team to play Hull City at home this afternoon, and in come Dummett and Tiote for Haidara and Anita. But it's a surprising selectionand Haidara was our Man of the Match last week, but he's been dropped and replaced by Paul Dummett go figure that one [...]
The team Alan Pardew played against Southampton last Saturdaywas probably the best team he could have played from the available players in the squad. Steven Taylor could get a start tomorrow And that performance was simply a disgrace, and in particular the defense was very unsteady especially the two central defenders and [.
As many as three in four fans think we will lose the game at Southampton today, and that just about sums upthe negative feelings and frustrations surrounding Newcastle United at the moment.' Here are the results of the poll for today's game. Two weeks ago 70% thought we would beat Crystal Palace at home, and [.

Hopefully we will have both Cheick Tiote and Jack Colback fit for the next game at Southampton a week today, and we suppose Jack and Cheick would be our first choice central midfielders in the 4-2-3-1 formation. Cheick Tiote should be fit for Saints game? It was really a sobering and short notice that [.
We're not sure of exactly what the injury status is at Newcastle, but since England contacted Newcastle early yesterday about Colback's fitness before announcing Jack in the latest England squad, we assume he will be fitfor tomorrow's home game against Crystal Palace. Siem de Jong and Colback should both start tomorrow Whether Cheick Tiote [.
It could get messy on Sunday. Eamonn Holmes at an all you can eat buffet messy. Everyone is aware of a possible humiliation, but there is reason to be positive. A talented and ambitious group of players, a big game manager at the helm and an electric Old Trafford atmosphere.
