On Sunday we welcome our European companions Fulham to Anfield, this a must-win game for us to keep our slim hopes for fourth place finish alive.
Earlier this season Fulham beat us 3-1 at Craven Cottage in a game we ended with nine men after Degen and Carragher were both red carded.
On Sunday the Cottagers will be without the services of Dempsey and Johnson while Davies, Elm, Pantsil and Zamora are all doubtful. This is sure to reduce their strike force however a certain Danny Murphy is set to start for the Londoners.
As for the Liverpool lineup; Kelly, Skrtel and Aurelio are still injured while Torres was doubtful earlier but is expected to start. Rafa has a dilemma on who to play and who to rest with Kuyt, Benayoun, Lucas and Kyrgiakos being the four players that I predict will start on the bench. I also predict that the Gaffer will call Babel, Maxi, Aquilani & Insua back to the starting lineup with Agger moving back to partner Carra in central defence. Gerrard would also be moved back while Aquilani would play behind Torres and this will give the skipper a chance to recharge his batteries.
My Predicted Starting XI :
Reina, Johnson, Carragher, Agger, Insua, Babel, Mascherano, Gerrard, Maxi, Aquilani, Torres
Kick off is at 3PM
