Kickoff from Anfield at 3:00PM BST/10:00AM EST

Included in the many who are hopeful that Liverpool are in the process of moving in a more positive, successful direction is Sami Hyypia, who returns to Anfield today as the manager of Bayer Leverkusen. "A new manager has come in and he did a good job at Swansea. Hopefully he can do a good job at Liverpool as well. There is a lot of tradition and a lot of success at this club, so I am just waiting for the moment Liverpool get back to where they have been in the past." Today doesn't play a huge part in the club returning to former glories, but it'll be nice to have a man who was an integral part of that tradition and success back for the afternoon.
