Rodgers set to play 17-year-old in cup clash

Manager Brendan Rodgers has confirmed that 17-year-old midfielder Jordan Rossiter will be involved in some capacity for Liverpool's FA Cup fourth round clash against Bolton on Saturday.

Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard could be rested for the match.

With a must-win Capital One Cup semi-final second leg at Chelsea on the way on Tuesday, the 34-year-old, who missed last weekend's win at Aston Villa with a tight hamstring, is likely to drop to the bench.

Defender Glen Johnson, midfielder Joe Allen and striker Mario Balotelli all returned to training this week.

Provisional squad: Mignolet, Can, Lovren, Sakho, Manquillo, Henderson, Lucas, Moreno, Lallana, Coutinho, Sterling, Ward, Skrtel, Enrique, Rossiter, Gerrard, Williams, Markovic, Lambert, Borini, Ojo.
