The Reds managed to secure a thrilling 5-3 win over Young Boys in their last European outing and they will be hoping to repeat that feat against their Italian opponents, who have only ever won once against an English team, which was Tottenham Hotspur in the UEFA Cup during the 2008-09 campaign.
The Merseyside outfit are currently unbeaten in six European fixtures and Rodgers will try to secure the seventh with a relatively young side that is likely to boast Dani Pacheco up front with Fabio Borini, Suso and Oussama Assaidi providing support.
Reds skipper Steven Gerrard and frontman Luis Suarez are likely to be rested, while Jordan Henderson and Jonjo Shelvey, whose three-match ban is not affected in Europe, should line the middle of the park.
Liverpool: Jones; Wisdom, Carragher, Coates, Enrique; Henderson, Shelvey; Borini, Suso, Assaidi; Pacheco
Udinese: Padelli; Danilo, Domizzi, Benatia, Armero; Faraoni, Bado; Lazarri, Pereya, Willians; Ranegie
Sports Mole says: 2-1
