Friends Of Liverpool

Liverpool face Roy Hodgson’s Fulham at Craven Cottage today needing all three points to push for a place at the top of the table.
This will be no easy task as Fulham are very difficult to beat home or away.
Liverpool will again have to do without Steven Gerrard, still suffering from a groin strain he picked up on duty with England.
Glen Johnson is also out with a calf injury which he must have picked up in our great win against Man Utd and new recruit Alberto Aquilani, who did well in his 20mins against Arsenal, has a virus so he too may be out off the squad.
That leaves Rafa Benitez with a straight forward team selection.
Carra, Agger, Insua, Deggen at the back.
Mascherano, Lucas, Benayoun and Aurelio in midfield and Torres and Dirk Kuyt named upfront and working on the right side of the attack.
I am expecting a tough game with Duff and Dempsey the ones to watch in attack and hopefully Benayoun the man to get us the winner like he did in the corresponding match last season where his ate goal was enough to give us a 1-0 win.
Lets hope for more of the same this afternoon. I predict a 2-1 win by us, hopefully!
