Back from injury, Rodri slotted back in against the Saints in a solid and dominant performance. Looking a little leggy to begin with, he quickly settled back into rhythm. Perhaps 60 minutes in his system would be good ahead of our trip to Anfield at the weekend?
Assuming he and his wife have been to eat at Pep’s restaurant, blues skipper will start after being benched at the weekend. Whilst we will want to avoid injuries for Liverpool, it is important that our starters maintain their rhythm.
Pep is likely to start strong to try and get the game won, to then rest players early in the game, he will desperately want to finish top of the group. Who better to help us on the way than the assist king himself? Also, Bernardo deserves a rest ahead of the weekend.
