Brendan Rodgers do need to find alternatives as players are absent for games coming up. To play Marc Albrighton at right back is a risky affair, not to say that he is an alternative, but his experience in that position is limited.
We did see Vontae Dailey-Campbell play at the right in a previous cup game and he is a clever player and would fit the bill with all other options out. Daniel Amartey is also an alternative as they are better tacklers than Marc Albrighton.
Injuries and sickness is of course disturbing, but that is part of the game, so is the fixture list which is known from the start of August and you must plan your work instead of complaining. Players are paid heavy to be able to cope with this and they can decide instead to take up a regular job.
This is 90 minutes of a day of 24 hours, they should be able to cope and if they do not and get knocks and injuries clubs need to play other players and of course in a perfect world you don’t have games at all and no one would be injured.
Footballers who complain and manager doing the same could just quit as they do not need to be in this trade if they don’t like it and to have a situation one day in a year that you play once every second day should be no problem as it is just this only time of the year.
Alternatives are many in the academy and for Rodgers is a solution and with Daily-Campbell you have a player that could go straight in and do the job since he is a natural right back alternative.
He has also played at England U.19 level, and this season 13 appearances in the U.23 team that at the moment are standing 9th in the PL2.
