The two worked well together and manager Brendan Rodgers could be tempted to start them in tandem this evening against Swansea in the League Cup.
Jamie Carragher had a look at the pairing on Sky Sports’ Monday Night Football;
As was noted by Andrew Beasley, Lambert made more passes to Balotelli than any other Liverpool player, despite playing only half an hour together.
Re @Carra23 analysis-RL passed to MB more than anyone did whilst he was on the pitch & 2 of the 5 passes MB received in the box were from RL

It was Lambert who played in Balotelli for a good chance late on and Balotelli looked far more at ease with a partner alongside him.
There’s certainly an argument to play both against Swansea, with each looking in need of form, fitness and indeed a goal to boost their confidence.
Would you start the two of them together tonight?
