Liverpool F.C.         v         Fulham F.C.

Date:                 26 January 2011
Kick-off Time:  20:00 GMT
Venue:              Anfield, Liverpool

Team News:-
J Carragher        Dislocated Shoulder   unavailable
Lucas                 Hamstring                   doubtful

With Jovanovic (Illness), Cole (Ankle) and Gerrard (Suspension) all available for selection once again, Jamie Carragher is the only injury absentee. When was the last time in January we had so few injured players? Thanks to the Aussi's for that! Lucas is also doubtful due to a hamstring injury he picked up in the first half against Wolves. Rumours are he is being rested for tonight as a precaution.

Fulham are without Etuhu, Briggs, Zamora and Senderos.

Djphal (who is usually on the money with the lineups!) has posted the Liverpool team to be as follows:-

Reina, Kelly, Johnson, Skrtel, Agger, Poulsen, Meireles, Gerrard, Kuyt, Maxi, Torres

Which I assume means
Reina

Kelly   Skrtel   Agger   Johnson
Poulsen
Meireles   Gerrard
Kuyt                           Maxi
Torres
After the massive 3-0 win against Wolves at the weekend, Kenny is now hunting for his first home win of his second spell in charge. Raul really looks on top of his game at the moment which means he'll be hitting shots from everywhere. Gerrard is back also just to add to the seemingly endless list of nightmares coming Mark Schwarzer's way. Torres isn't far off top gear either. It could be a very long night (and longer trip home) for Fulham if those 3 are all in top form tonight.

Expecting Gerrard for Poulsen to be the only change. Maybe Aurelio for Kelly also as, despite being impressive so far, we also don't want Kelly's legs burning out the way Insua's did playing too many games too soon in his career.

Here's some footballing porn to warm you up for the game. Never gets tiring watching Raul's goal!

   



Aristotle:
I'm for this one, hope y'all can survive without me :P

Chakan:
Sorry guys can't contribute to this one either. I will be at work while the game is on. Stupid midweek games. Have fun and hopefully we get a good result!

BabuYagu:
Well that's just fine. I'll do it on my own then. *slams door in a huff*

Just read that a win tonight would put us in 7th place!!! Had a look and it's correct, as the only EPL game tonight and because of FA Cup fixtures at the weekend, it would put us 7th until the beginning of February. Would be a nice lift for all at the club that I think!

Refo:
The huff isn't necessary, I'm up for this one!

This should be an exciting game. Interesting resting Lucas to say the least, heard he was injured though. I still think we should edge it and hopefully play some great football.
