Brendan Rodgers has hinted that Raheem Sterling will not be back into the starting XI yet, as the young winger has been given some time off to freshen himself up for the remainder of the season.
Meanwhile, 14th placed Sunderland will be looking to get something out of the game after a 3-1 defeat to Hull, in their last home game. Gus Poyet’s side have won only one of their last five league games and will be looking to take advantage of Liverpool’s inconsistencies.
