stating the obvious when i say another massive game for LIVERPOOL, really we are down to the business end of the season and every game is a cup final now, no room for slip ups, so lets have a look at monday nights game.
apparently WIGAN have just layed new turf at the DW STADIUM hopefully making it more suitable for LIVERPOOL'S passing game. LIVERPOOL don't have a great record in monday night fixtures not witnessing victory in their last 5 monday night matches, so hopefully this record will be rectified this monday.
with WIGAN seemingly at full strength for monday LIVERPOOL still have a few injury worries, JOHNSON still not ready, SKRTEL will be long term and DANIEL AGGER has a badly bruised knee and left on crutches after last sunday's BLACKBURN bruising encounter. AURELIO also injured after leaving in 1st half on sunday.
but for all these injuries i don't think RAFA will change the team too dramatically for the trip to WIGAN.
i reckon the team will look a lot like this -
i think this is going to be a very difficult game LIVERPOOL, though being on a good run of form at the moment not conceding many goals and now with TORRES back looks like we can see us scoring again, when for a few weeks there there was a worry of where the goals were coming from. now there is a more of an attacking look about us now with the likes of BENAYOUN back MAXI out on the right and GERRARD teaming up with TORRES again.
i just think there will have to be a bit of shuffle at the back especially with AGGER struggling, although KYRIAGOS available again after suspension.
so i think CARRA will play in the middle with KYRIAGOS and KELLY coming into right back, but i reckon if AGGER is fit then CARRA will go out to right back, but we'll just have to wait and see.
PREDICTION- WIGAN ATHLETIC 0-2 LIVERPOOL
HIGHLIGHTS LIVERPOOL 2-1 WIGAN (from earlier this season)
