former player


has talked about the team saying that


should use more players in his starting lineup since they are comfortable about their progress in the

Champions League


Aldridge told the Liverpool Echo:

“Liverpool are in the lovely position now having wrapped up Champions League qualification as group winners with a game to spare to be able to give some players an overdue rest ahead of the big Premier League games coming up against Fulham and Tottenham.

“It's got to be done, simple as that, plus there are people in the squad who need games so it works out well for them.

“Naby Keita and Trent Alexander-Arnold could do with getting minutes in their legs having just come back from injury against Wolves and the manager will be pleased to be able to freshen things up with no pressure on the outcome of the game in Denmark whatsoever.

“Takumi Minamino and Divock Origi have both got points to prove to themselves as much as anybody and could do with grasping the opportunity if it's handed to them again.

“Origi at the moment looks miles off the player he can be and Minamino has shown some nice touches here and there but needs to start delivering goals and assists to show he can be a viable option for the manager.

“We will still have a decent team out because we've got a good squad but for some of these fringe players the ball is in their court and they need to step up to show what they can do as some of the walking wounded gradually find their way back to fitness.”
