It is surely time for Brendan Rodgers to rotate the starters in his squad for tonight’s visit to Fir Park. Leigh Griffiths will start as Moussa Dembele recovers from what should have been a red card challenge at Hampden on Sunday, but he is only one of a few changes I would make.
James Forrest is at the top of his game right now but I would ask Patrick Roberts to take up the right-mid berth. There will not be space for James to exploit his speed, whereas Patrick’s close-game will be needed.
Tom Rogic and Olivier Ntcham should start in midfield, while Scott Sinclair simply has to start on the left. While Erik Sviatchenko is fit again I would prefer to keep the regular back line for this one. Maybe give Erik a round out on Saturday.
With European games and a League Cup final, we are in the middle of peak fixture congestion for the season. No matter how imperious the players look, they all hit the wall eventually if not rested.
