LIVERPOOL V PORTSMOUTH MATCH PREVIEW
every game is important now but after the last two performances LIVERPOOL have played there really has to be an added importance to this match, never mind fourth place another performance on par with the last two will cast serious questions over the team, RAFA, the future of the club and the fans are starting to lose patience in what has been a difficult season for them after the heights of last season.
this will be a difficult game with LIVERPOOL'S confidence not great and PORTSMOUTH with nothing to lose and recently reaching the FA CUP semi-final.
still missing from the squad are SKRTEL,AURELIO and BENAYOUN will be a doubt after missing the trip to LILLE. so i reckon the team will be-
RIGHT BACK- JOHNSON
LEFT BLACK- INSUA
CENTRE BACK- CARRAGHER
CENTRE BACK- AGGER
LEFT MIDFIELD- MAXI
RIGHT MIDFIELD- KUYT
CENTRE MIDFIELD- LUCAS
CENTRE MIDFIELD- MASCHERANO
CENTRE MIDFIELD (ATTACKING)- GERRARD
CENTRE FORWARD- TORRES
i think it will be more or less the same team as thursday other than MAXI who is available again coming in for BABEL.
i think its going to be a very tight game with LIVERPOOL low on confidence and PORTSMOUTH going to be shutting things down and no doubt playing counter attack. LIVERPOOL will need to up their tempo from the last two games if they are going to penetrate PORTSMOUTH,they have been too pedestrian in their build up and they need to show more directness in their attacking. i would like to see JOHNSON getting down the line more than he's been doing since coming back from injury. also GERRARD has to rally the troops more, he's been very quiet in recent games so hopefully he'll be more like his usual self.
i do think we'll win and i think the score will be-
LIVERPOOL 1-0 PORTSMOUTH
