Cup Tied Assaidi Won't Face Hearts

Oussama Assaidi, Liverpool's surprise signing from last Thursday, will miss out on the chance to debut against Heart of Midlothian FC in the Europa League this week after taking part in previous qualifying rounds with Dutch side SC Heerenveen. Because of that, the newly arrived Moroccan winger finds himself cup tied for the final playoff round. However, if Liverpool do advance past Hearts to reach the group stages, Assaidi will become eligible to play in the Europa League proper. With Joe Cole once again injured, Assaidi's ineligibility leaves Liverpool with few wide options for the match beyond Stewart Downing, Fabio Borini, and 17-year-old Raheem Sterling.
