Liverpool:
----------Reina-------------
--Carragher-Skrtel-Agger--
Johnson-------------Aurelio
----Lucas-----Spearing----
Benayoun----------Babel
----------Kuyt-------------

Bench: Cavalieri, Voronin, Riera, Mascherano, Insua, Ngog, Kelly.

Obviously with Torres and Gerrard missing, the starting eleven was always going to be different. A bit of a surprise that Jay Spearing partners with Lucas in central midfield...no news about Mascherano suffering an injury on international duty. Ryan Babel is given another chance to impress, and he'll need to if Liverpool are to take all three points today. Can't overstate how excited I am to see Daniel Agger back in first-team action, and a three man back line may just be exactly what Liverpool need right now. Probably plenty of overlap and switching up front, particularly between Benayoun and Kuyt. Kickoff in minutes...

Come on you Reds!
