Liverpool v Carlisle: Confirmed starting line-up – Emre Can set to start in rotation team

Liverpool contract rebel Emre Can Liverpool legends

Liverpool take on Carlisle in the Carling Cup at Anfield hoping to get back on track after a poor run in the Premier League.

Reds head coach Brendan Rodgers has made a number of changes to the side that drew 1-1 against Norwich City last weekend.

Rodgers is without Cristian Benteke who has a hamstring problem and has decided to give Divock Origi a rare start upfront. The Belgium striker has struggled for playing time this season and has been linked with a winter loan move.

Emre Can is one of the few first-team players that will get to start against Carlisle while summer signings signings Firminho and Ings also get to start in the cup game.
