Wednesday night football seems to be something of a bygone era however it was only a year ago that we were playing in the Champions League and I am sure that we will be back if not next season, the season after.
If we beat Utrecht we will equal a record of 9 consecutive home wins in Europe set during the Bob Paisley era. However besides that statistic the game is really a no nothing as no matter what the scoreline brings it will not effect our position in the table, we will finish first. This gives Roy a chance to rest the senior team members and give the youngsters a chance however he has already said that Pepe Reina, Fernando Torres and the “two center backs” will feature.
Pepe Reina, Martin Kelly, Sotiris Kyrgiakos, Martin Skrtel, Fabio Aurelio, Christian Poulsen, Joe Cole, Jonjo Shelvey, Dani Pacheco, Ryan Babel, Fernando Torres
Kickoff is at 8:05PM GMT
