Hyypia
Arbeloa
Gonzalez
Alonso
Zenden
Pennant
Crouch
Kuyt

Subs - Dudek, Agger, Gerrard, Bellamy, Mascherano

The only real surprise is neither Masch nor Momo are starting in the middle, though Xabi and Zenden are more than capable of playing sufficient defense to control the area. Bolo is due for a goal and we have Masch on the bench if Rafa starts to feel that things are getting out of hand. Good to see Pennant in there, I look forward to seeing him run the offense and with Kuyt around he shouldn't get all the attention. What a bench.
