Cup-tied Jordon Ibe is replaced by Adam Lallana, with Lazar Markovic moving back to the right of midfield.

Joe Allen replaces Steven Gerrard, meaning Emre Can remains in the back three and keeps the defence unchanged.

Daniel Sturridge starts his second game in a row up front, while Philippe Coutinho starts his 17th game in a row in just the last two months and despite suffering with an injury of late.

Rodgers continues to play a strong XI in the FA Cup, despite important games against Besiktas and Southampton within the next week.

Kick off at Selhurst Park is 5.30pm GMT (live on BT Sport in the UK).

Liverpool: Mignolet, Can, Skrtel, Sakho, Markovic, Henderson, Allen, Moreno, Lallana, Coutinho, Sturridge.

Subs: Ward, Johnson, Lovren, Lambert, Manquillo, Borini, Balotelli.

Crystal Palace: Speroni, Kelly, Dann, Hangeland, Souare, Bolasie, Ledley, Ward, Gayle, Chamakh, Campbell.

Subs: Hennessey, Mariappa, Delaney, Guedioura, Puncheon, Zaha, Murray.
