Liverpool vs Mickey Mouse FC: What will Rafa do?

New, comments

I doubt I'll get around to doing this tomorrow so I might as well get it out of the way. First and foremost, the Gerrard dilemma. I personally hope he doesn't play, but I'm not Rafa. I kind of think he won't start and will be on the bench just in case. The other question is whether or not Kewell will play. I've been told, through an unreliable source, that there's a chance, but from what else I've read points toward a longer wait for his recovery. As for the rest of the team:

K - Pepe Reina
LB - Alvaro Arbeloa
CB - Jamie Carragher
CB - Daniel Agger
RB - Steve Finnan
LM - John Arne Riise
CM - Xabi Alonso
CM - Javier Mascherano
RM - Jermaine Pennant
F - Dirk Kuyt
F - Fernando Torres

Bench
Charles Itandje
Sammi Hyypia
Momo Sissoko
Yossi Benayoun
Steven Gerrard

Nothing out of the ordinary. I don't see Babel on the bench over Benayoun, since the latter has experience against Chelsea. Also Yossi can play forward if something were to happen to Kuyt or Torres, which is why I left Voronin off. Rob Styles will be the ref, he called the Chelsea game at Anfield last year.
