Liverpool in town

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

"Funnily enough the Carling Cup tie arguably had Liverpool`s strongest team." Have to disagree with that. No Reina, Riise, Carra, Gerrard, Finnan, Kuyt, Babel, Alonso, Mascherano, Pennant, Keweel, Agger.

couldnt have put it any better myself aamir,its ridiculous to suggest that was our strongest team!......if wigans defence play high up the park like they did in last years corresponding fixture they will get annihilated.remember the damage bellamy did that day?just imagine what torres could do.........

Aamir, Carra played against Reading, as did Finnan.
JohnDoe
As did Steven Gerrard and John Arne Riise, albeit as a second-half subs. Jack Hobbs came off the bench to make his first senior appearance, too. I was at the game and Fernando Torres's second half hat-trick was a sight to see. It would have been at least four if the referee hadn't been so lenient towards the Reading defence: Torres was brought down in the box but denied a stonewall penalty and on other occasions he was impeded outside the area by defenders who clearly couldn't handle his strength, pace and acceleration. The two goals conceded from corner kicks were rather embarassing, though.

If you think we are the same team as last year think again. The back four are totally different and think yer selves lucky we've got Heskey, Valencia and Landzaat out or it would have been a home banker

JD, sorry about Carra and Finnan. I was looking at the team sheet for the match and for some reason I didn't see Finnan and Carra on it!
