LILLE V LIVERPOOL MATCH PREVIEW
only chance of silverware this season in europe's secondary competition while ARSENAL and MAN UTD show classy displays in europe's primary competition seeing them ease into the quarter finals, LIVERPOOL can only watch with envy especially after their latest disaster at WIGAN on monday night.
although 4th place in the league is priority this competition is showing great importance as well because of the lack of silverware in recent years.
there has to be a dramatic improvement on thursday night in LILLE or LIVERPOOL'S season could capitulate in what has been a rollercoaster of a season, but with games running out there is now no margin for error.
excuses there has been for most of the season with the injuries but not now as most of their injuries have cleared up.
LILLE is not the ideal opponent after such a disaster earlier in the week especially with LILLE having a good run of form and fighting for the french league.
RIGHT BACK- CARRAGHER
LEFT BACK- INSUA
CENTRE BACK- KYRIAGOS
CENTRE BACK- AGGER
LEFT MIDFIELD- BABEL
RIGHT MIDFIELD- KUYT
CENTRE MIDFIELD- LUCAS
CENTRE MIDFIELD- MASCHERANO
CENTRE MIDFIELD(ATTACKING)- GERRARD
CENTRE FORWARD- TORRES
i think there will be one or two changes from monday's team CARRA going back out to right back because i didn't think JOHNSON looked fit when he came on the other night. AGGER partnering KYRIAGOS after recovering from his bruised knee, while MASCHERANO will go back into the middle of midfield where he is at his best, letting GERRARD push further up the park. i think BABEL will come in on the left midfield due to BENAYOUN struggling to be fit and MAXI cup tied.
PREDICTION - LILLE 1-1 LIVERPOOL
think it will be a very tight game and with TORRES up front i think we'll nick a goal but i think LILLE might score as well so i'll go for the score draw.
