Rodgers set to rotate squad for County clash

Brendan Rodgers will use tonight’s Capital One Cup second round tie against Notts County to field a number of his squad players.

Luis Alberto is set to make his debut for the club, while Andre Wisdom and Raheem Sterling are pushing for their first starts of the season.

Meanwhile, TalkSport have reported that the Reds have had a loan bid for Juan Mata turned down by Chelsea.

The Spain international, who was an unused substitute in last night’s goalless draw at Old Trafford, has been linked with a move away from Stamford Bridge since the return of manager Jose Mourinho.

Elsewhere, winger Oussama Assaidi is set to complete a move to Stoke City later today, according to the Mail Online.

The Morocco international has failed to make an impression since signing from Heerenveen last summer, having played just seventy-three minutes of league football for the Reds while his only starts came in the League Cup and Europa League.

Finally, Daniel Sturridge is expected to be recalled to the England set-up for the forthcoming internationals against Moldova and Ukraine.

Roy Hodgson will name the squad for the World Cup Qualifiers later on today, with Sturridge likely to add to his six caps following his impressive start to the season.
