Following our rout of Burnley last Sunday we now host Atletico Madrid in the second leg of the Europa League Semi-Final.
We are now at a one goal deficit going into the game and we need an early goal to settle the nerves and not give Atletico the opportunity to dig-in and get comfortable. A goal by Atletico would mean that we would have to score three goals so it could make it very tricky.
Rafa Benitez has injury headaches to deal with David Ngog and Dirk Kuyt are both doubtful while Fernando Torres, Martin Skrtel, Martin Kelly, Emiliano Insua and Fabio Aurelio are all injured, Maxi Rodriguez is cup-tied.
For Atletico, Sergio Aguero returns after he was suspended in the first leg.
Pepe Reina, Glen Johnson, Jamie Carragher, Sotiris Kyrgiakos, Daniel Agger, Javier Mascherano, Lucas Leiva, Alberto Aquilani, Yossi Benayoun, Steve Gerrard, Ryan Babel
Kick off is at 8:05PM
