Liverpool come into town tomorrow on the back of a 0-0 home draw in the league against Birmingham and a 4-2 away drubbing of Reading in the Carling Cup
Funnily enough the Carling Cup tie arguably had Liverpool`s strongest team and Torres bagged a hat-trick for the reds, but will he be in the side tomorrow?
It`s easier to read what mood my missus is in than forecast what team Rafa Benitez will put out, and the fans are growing restless at some of his selections.
The Anfield faithful were desperate before the season started for this to be their year in the league and everything started out well until Mr Tinkerman started to change the squad round more often than I change my undies
In contrast the Latics team almost picks itself; Heskey, Landzaat and Valencia are all still out injured but Kilbane should have recovered from an ankle knock
Latics have never managed to get even a point off Liverpool in four previous meetings, but with Champions League coming up next week and Benitez rotation system tomorrow could be the day to change that fact
Latics should choose from:
Wigan (from): Kirkland, Melchiot, Granqvist, Bramble, Kilbane, Brown, Scharner, Skoko, Koumas, Sibierski, Bent, Aghahowa, Boyce, Cotterill, Hall, Olembe, Taylor, Pollitt.
Exciting the fans in every game he plays, starting to live up to his pre-season billing
Reina, Finnan, Hyypia, Carragher, Arbeloa, Aurelio, Riise, Pennant, Gerrard, Sissoko, Mascherano, Benayoun, Babel, Kuyt, Crouch, Voronin, Torres, Itandje.
Quality striker with superb all round skills
Last meeting at the JJB
2nd December 2006
Wigan Athletic 0-4 Liverpool (Bellamy 9, 26, Kuyt 40, McCulloch 45 og)
Heart says 1-0 Latics
Head says 0-1 Liverpool
