Team selection for tonight’s game will be a big call for Brendan Rodgers. His desire to get players fully match fit will be tempered with the need for limbs to rest. I expect to see a much-changed side against Kilmarnock, perhaps with Kundai Benyu, Kristoffer Ajer and Eboue Kouassi getting a start.
There is a risk in dropping top players, especially in cup competitions, but some risks have to be taken.
The other important matter is the getting the sugar in our tea, otherwise known as Leigh Griffiths, on full sharpness for next week’s visit of Astana. I’d expect Leigh to get an hour tonight.
