Andre Villas-Boas continues his policy of letting the youth prove themselves in the Carling Cup despite an improvement in the quality of competition and the proximity of a Wembley final if we win two more matches. The lineups were announced as the following:
Liverpool FC - Reina; Kelly, Carragher, Coates, Enrique; Lucas, Spearing; Henderson, Bellamy, Rodriguez; Carroll
Subs - Flanagan, Skrtel, Doni, Agger, Adam, Downing, Kuyt, Suarez
The referee for the match will be Phil Dowd
Looking forward to seeing Josh, Bertrand, and Lukaku in the lineup today. While the official site lists our formation as a 4-3-3, it will be interesting to see the shape we actually take while playing Lukaku and Torres together up top. Hopefully the win over the weekend was just a preview of what the club has in store for us today...it would be awful nice to see Torres explode against his former club today. Have at it...
