And the envelope reads...

Reina, Finnan, Riise, Carragher, Agger, Mascherano, Gerrard, Pennant, Zenden, Crouch, Kuyt.

Subs - Padelli, Arbeloa, Hyypia, Fowler, Gonzalez, Alonso, Bellamy.

Zenden on the left is a bit disappointing, but we will have Pennant on the right and Gerrard in the middle, so the ball shouldn't go to him so much. The big surprise for me is no Dudek. I hope Reina stays in net the whole game, not that I don't have any confidence in Padelli, I've just never seen him play.

I'm really pleased to see Gerrard in the middle, but where's Sissoko? Is he really injured? And what's up with us being secretive about injuries lately?

Anyhow, I'm nervous as hell and need to down a few before it starts. Good luck to Chelsea, hopefully they'll need more than that.
