WE CAN BEAT LYON

Friends Of Liverpool

With our injury crisis and our poor run of form, Lyon are favourites to win in France tonight.
However, I am sticking my neck out and going for another famous win in Europe.
Yes, we are missing loads of first team players, most notably Steven Gerrard.
Yes, Fernando Torres isn’t fully fit and yes we are in our worst run of form for decades.
But, it is just at times like these that Liverpool defy the odds and put in great performances and victories.
Rafa is woefully short on numbers in defence with Aurelio, Johnson and Skrtel out injured and Jamie Carragher is struggling for pace and form and it looks like either youngster Steven Darby may make his debut or centre-back Ayala may start.
The midfield is fine with Mascherano and Lucas flanked by Benayoun and Kuyt.
Rumours abound that Aquilani is set to join Torres upfront, this could work as the young Italian can easily play in the hole between attack and midfield.
So, providing the defence doesn’t concede anymore soft goals and the team plays like men possessed, then we can do it!
