LIVERPOOL (Sporting Alert) — Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard returns to the starting lineup for the first time since he injured his hamstring at the beginning of December as he starts in today’s FA Cup 3rd round clash with Oldham.
The game sees Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers making six changes to the team which beat Hull City in the EPL, with Gerrard coming in, but Luis Suarez, Philippe Coutinho and Lucas all dropped to the bench for this one.
Meanwhile, Anton Rodgers, who is the son of Brendan, has been named on the Oldham bench and could face his father at some time during the game.
