Good team, I might have put Carroll in for Kuyt to get even more height and heading ability to deal with their long throws. But Skrtel, Carragher and Coates is a good idea in my opinion. The formation looks defensive, but remember when Kenny first arrived we used this system (or something like it) to good effect against Stoke, Chelsea, and maybe elsewhere I can't really remember. Everyone needs to stop tweaking.
Is Gerrard in the midfield? Yeah, Gerrard's in the midfield. We're fine, 3-0 to us.
