Match Preview

First Leg Lille 1-0 Liverpool

Lets hope Rafa will not be focused on domestic duty as they bid to overturn a 1-0 defecit to make Europa League progress.

Our next Premier League match following the Lille game is at Old Trafford against rivals Man Utd, but we must deal with the french side 1st.

We now have two important games but we have to concentrate on the first one. We then need to think about the Utd game, but we cannot have that game on the minds of the players or will trip up in the Thursday night match.

After the great display and win over Portsmouth on Monday evening it is the perfect result going into this vital European night. A game in which we should over turn on the night and progress to the Quarter Final draw on Friday.

We will be without Maxi as he is cup-tied for playing earlier in the tournament. Both Skrtel and Aurelio are missing from the squad due to injury but Benayoun will be in contention for a return to the starting line-up after recovering from a angle injury. After a inspiring match against Pompey Aquilani is also a doubt after missing training with a virus.

It all makes for another great European night at Anfield, lets hope we all go home happy reds. YNWA
