Friends Of Liverpool

Liverpool face Lille at Anfield tomorrow night hoping to overcome a 1-0 deficit from the first leg in France.

The Reds played well enough in Lille only to concede from a late free kick from that man, Hazard.

He is their play maker so we will have to pay close attention to him tomorrow night.

After Monday’s fabulous performance in beating Portsmouth, Rafa today suggested that a more cautious performance will be required to overcome the French side.

Man of the match against Pompey, Alberto Aquilani may be the one to miss out.

The classy Italian, who finally produced a display of quality and capped it with his first goal for Liverpool has been struck down with a virus which may rule him out of Thursday’s game.

Many pundits felt that he would have been replaced by Lucas in any case as a more robust midfield is Benitez’ prefered option.

Liverpool need to score twice,at least, on Thursday.

But we dare not concede an away goal or we will face an uphill battle to win the tie.

They say ‘the best form of defence is attack’ and most people would agree with that dictum.

So Rafa faces a tricky decision, does he go all out for the win and risk giving away an away goal or does he play it cagey, solid in defence and hope to catch Lille on the break?

I say: Go for it Rafa! Let the team play like we did on Monday and we can beat anyone.
