PENNANT BACK AGAINST THE BLUES
Paul Hassall at St Andrews 26 April 2008
Jermaine Pennant returns to the Liverpool line-up against his former clubs as the Reds look to guarantee fourth place in the Premier League against Birmingham this afternoon.
The 25-year-old winger, who turned in a man of the match performance at Fulham last weekend, comes into the side as Rafael Benitez makes nine changes from the team that was on duty in the Champions League on Tuesday.
Reserve team star Damien Plessis makes his second appearance for the club in the midfield while Andriy Voronin and Peter Crouch will lead the attack.
The Liverpool team in full: Reina, Finnan, Riise, Skrtel, Hyypia, Plessis, Lucas, Pennant, Benayoun, Voronin, Crouch. Subs: Itandje, Gerrard, Kuyt, Carragher, Insua.
