We edging closer and closer to the big one on Saturday. What a game it is going to be! It looks like Gerrard and Torres may not be ready for the game on Saturday but I still have confidence that even without our two star players we have a pretty good chance of winning. What will be interesting is to see who Rafa starts with on Saturday. He has to find replacements for Gerrard and Torres. Will he hand Riera his debut against Manchester United? The battle for the leftback jursey seems to be getting intense between Aurelio and Dossena. Could there be a surprise inclusion of Agger in central defence or will Rafa stick with Skrtel and Carragher?

With Rafa you never know who he is going to start with. If I had my way, this is the way I would want them to lineup on Saturday:
Reina in goal. Arbeloa at right back, Dossena at left back. Carragher and Skrtel in central defence. Riera getting his debut down the left with Kuyt playing on the right of midfield. Alonso and Mascherano in central midfield. Keane and Babel operating upfront.

Who do you want to see start on Saturday?

    Maybe Aurelio or Arbeloa for Degen but yea, I’d be stoked with that line-up
