A huge night in the title race is upon us with surely anything but a Liverpool win at Crystal Palace would see Manchester City crowned as Champions.
City’s win at Everton on Saturday night has put the pressure on Brendan Rodgers and his side, and it appears he wants to pack the midfield to ease that somewhat.
Playmaker Philippe Coutinho has been a star performer for the Reds this season but he finds himself out of the team tonight, with Jordan Henderson also missing out through suspension.
No doubt we will see the Brazilian at some point but some fans were not happy that Coutinho was not in the team from the start – although Rodgers claims a slight knock is the reason…
why isn't coutinho starting we should be going out for goals

We need to be winning by a fair few goals tonight so why is Lucas playing ahead of Coutinho? Makes no sense to me

Sorry to say it. But if BR has the intention to bury CP with goals, why bench the most creative Coutinho? Does he think City will fail?
