Liverpool to rest Gerrard and Suarez for Europa League opener


Bookmark and Share

Steven Gerrard and Luis Suarez are expected to sit out the first round of group games in the Europa League, as Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers attempts to keep his key players fresh for the weekend’s Premier League meeting with Manchester United, the Daily Mirror has reported.



Liverpool travel to Switzerland to take on Bern side Young Boys, with the Mirror claiming Rodgers is keen to avoid a repeat of the problems that afflicted the Reds after their last Europa League encounter.


Arsenal visited Anfield shortly after Liverpool qualified for the Europa League group stage by beating Scottish Premier League side Hearts, with the Gunners running out 2-0 winners against a fatigued home outfit. With United the opposition in Sunday’s early kick-off, Rodgers is willing to rest half-a-dozen or more first team players to save their legs for the league fixture.


The Mirror says that along with Gerrard and Suarez, the likes of goalkeeper Pepe Reina, defenders Daniel Agger and Glen Johnson, midfielder Joe Allen and forward Fabio Borini will be missing from the starting line-up in the Swiss capital. In their place will come a host of young players, including Spanish forward Suso and German striker Samed Yasil.
