Teams: Liverpool vs Wigan – Sterling on the bench

Liverpool v Wigan
Premier League; Saturday, 24th March 2012 (3pm)

Jon Flanagan replaces Martin Kelly at right back and Jordan Henderson replaces Charlie Adam in the two changes from the side that lost 3-2 to QPR on Wednesday night.

Youngsters Raheem Sterling and Nathan Eccleston get a place on the bench.

Meanwhile, Charlie Adam has been spotted on crutches around Anfield, confirming what we reported earlier that he is expected to miss the rest of the season.

Perhaps somewhat surprisingly is the exclusion of Andy Carroll from the starting line-up again, and the decision not to give Sebastian Coates a start, with the League campaign now relatively pointless most fans saw the remaining fixtures as an ideal opportunity to give the likes of Coates, Carroll and midfielder Jonjo Shelvey a start.

Liverpool: Reina; Flanagan, Carragher, Skrtel, Enrique; Henderson, Spearing, Gerrard, Downing; Kuyt, Suarez.
Subs: Doni, Coates, Carroll, Eccleston, Sterling, Shelvey, Aurelio.

Wigan: Al-Habsi; Boyce, Alcaraz, Caldwell, Figueroa; Moses, McArthur, McCarthy, Beausejour; Maloney; Di Santo.

Referee:Lee Mason
