Our first league game of the season takes us to Stoke as we try to put the FA cup exit behind us and focus on moving up the Premier League table.
Rafa has another selection headache with Benayoun, Torres, Gerrard, El Zhar, Riera and Johnson all injured.
Javier Mascherano is expected to return to action after his injury and ban. Pepe Reina is also expected to return in goal after missing the Reading game due to a “knock”. Maxi might make his LFC debut.
Ryan Babel tweeted this morning that he is not in the squad
@RyanBabel Hey people, I got some disappointing news, I m not travelling 2 Stoke.. The Boss left me out the squad. No explanation..
Not a good move Ryan, maybe tweets like these announcing the fact that you are not in the squad before Rafa did to the press is the reason why you are not in the squad.
OK, PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE DO NOT BITCH ABOUT RAFA’S SELECTION
Instead use all your energy to shout for our lads they are going to need it, COME ON REDS.
