Liverpool line-up v Besiktas: No Coutinho or Henderson for Reds as Rodgers plans for weekend clash

first_imgBrendan Rodgers has taken a pretty big gamble on his quest for a top four spot by leaving Philippe Coutinho, Jordan Henderson and Mamadou Sakho back on Merseyside, but that doesn’t mean the Liverpool boss doesn’t think his side can win the Europa League.With a massive clash against Man City waiting for them this weekend, the Reds’ paltry 48 hours to prepare for the domestic fixture has seen Rodgers take a calculated risk.That isn’t to say that he is planning on fielding a weakened side against Besiktas.While Coutinho, Henderson and Sakho watch on television, in their places are expected to come Dejan Lovren, Emre Can and Joe Allen – three very capable replacements.Liverpool were perhaps a little fortunate to pinch a 1-0 victory against their Turkish opponents in the first leg, and they may require an equal amount of luck if they are to progress to the last-16 of the competition.It is not just on the pitch there is intrigue, with three youngsters all believed to be vying for a spot on the Kop bench.Jordan Lussey, Cameron Brannagan and Jerome Sinclair are rumoured to be scrapping it out for the final spot in the matchday squad, although whether either of them will earn any game time remains unclear.A ‘leaked’ line up has been doing the rounds on Liverpool fan forums.Below is Liverpool’s ‘leaked’ starting XI: Brendan Rodgers faces a tough few days GoalkeeperThis will be a big week for Simon Mignolet, who remains under scrutiny, despite a strong show of form since his return to the starting XI. He is almost nailed on to start.DefenceWith Sakho back in England, the stage is set for Lovren to prove his worth. Alongside him will be Martin Skrtel and Kolo Toure.MidfieldCan has impressed as part of a back-three, but his versatility will likely see him move into defensive midfield. Alongside him will be Allen. Lazar Markovic’s suspension means that Jordon Ibe will retain his place on one flank with Alberto Moreno on the other.AttackLiverpool will miss Coutinho’s creativity, but in his place will be plenty of pace in the shape of Raheem Sterling and Adam Lallana. Daniel Sturridge remains as striker.Liverpool fans, how do you think you’ll line-up against Besiktas? Comment below…Besiktas v Liverpool is LIVE on talkSPORT, Thursday from 6pm.

World’s Largest Dome Comes Up at Peace Monument in Pune

first_imgThe world’s largest dome and peace center was inaugurated by Indian Vice President M. Venkaiah Naidu on Oct. 2 at the Maharashtra Institute of Technology in Pune to commemorate the birth anniversary of Mahatma Gandhi.The marble dome is 160 ft in diameter and 263 ft high, making it larger in area than the St. Peter’s Basilica in Vatican City (which is 136 ft. in diameter and 448 ft. in height). It has been built atop the World Peace Prayer Hall and Library at the 62,500 sq. ft. peace center at the Vishwarajbaug campus of the institute. The peace center is supported by 24 massive columns, each 63 feet tall.It also features 54 bronze statues of various personalities who called for world peace, including Gautam Buddha, Jesus Christ, Mahavir, Moses, Guru Nanak, Mahatma Gandhi. Also showcased are intellectual figures like Confucius, Adi Shankaracharya, Aristotle, Aryabhatta, Socrates, Plato, Galileo and Copernicus; philosopher-saints like Dnyaneshwara, Tukaram, Abdullah Shah Qadri (famous as Baba Bulleh Shah), Francis D’Assissi, Peter, Mother Teresa and Kabir; and scientists like Albert Einstien, Thomas Alva Edison, C.V. Raman, Jagadish Chandra Bose and Marie S. Curie.The dome is built together with a prayer hall called Sant Dnyaneshwara World Peace Prayer Hall, which will be dedicated towards establishing unity between spirituality and science.The dome, which took 13 years to be built, is the brainchild of Dr. Vishwanath Karad, founder-president and director general of the World Peace Center, MIT-Pune and MIT World Peace University.“The top of the dome here comprises another world first — a temple of Goddess Saraswati, symbolizing knowledge — and embodying the underlying spirit behind this entire monument, which is accessible by a massive stairway,” Karad told IANS.At its inauguration, Naidu said the structure is a “monumental addition to the thoughts propagated by the great saints of Maharashtra.”Saying that Indian ethos comprises “mutual respect and peaceful coexistence,” Naidu added: “I pray that this dome, which symbolizes harmony and peace is able to inspire a sense of unity and humanity in every single person who enters its premises.” Related ItemsArchitectureMaharashtraPunelast_img read more
