With qualifications for the Europa League knock-out stage almost secure the Reds can’t let down the guard when they face Steaua Bucharest in Romania tomorrow.
We did beat the Romanians 4-1 at home a few weeks ago however at home Steaua are going to be a tough team to beat.
With Steven Gerrard and Jamie Carragher injured, Roy Hodgson will most likely give the captain’s armband to Pepe Reina. The gaffer as also opted to rest Fernando Torres, Dirk Kuyt, Glen Johnson, Raul Meireles, Maxi Rodriguez and Paul Konchesky who were not included in the 19 men squad. This should be a good opportunity for some of the young players to shine however I think that Roy will opt for a safer alternative and try to snatch a point.
Pepe Reina, Martin Kelly, Martin Skrtel, Sotirios Kyrgiakos, Fabio Aurelio, Christian Poulsen, Lucas Leiva, Milan Jovanovic, Joe Cole, Ryan Babel, David Ngog
Kick off is at 6PM GMT
