View Full Version : Gerrard and Torres fit for Reds



Eric Cantona
12th September '08, 03:57 PM
Liverpool duo Steven Gerrard and Fernando Torres have both been declared fit to face Manchester United.

Gerrard missed England's 4-1 win in Croatia on Wednesday after undergoing a minor groin operation, while Torres has recovered from a hamstring tear.

Dimitar Berbatov is set to make his Man Utd debut after signing from Tottenham for 30.75m on transfer deadline day.

Owen Hargreaves (tendinitis) and Michael Carrick (ankle) both return for the trip to Anfield.

The news that Gerrard and Torres are in line to face United will be a big boost for Liverpool.

Torres pulled up during his side's 0-0 draw with Aston Villa last month and missed Spain's recent World Cup qualifiers, while Gerrard has struggled with his groin injury since the start of the season.

Robbie Keane is likely to start alongside the Spanish striker as he searches for his first competitive goal for the Reds, while Albert Riera is in line to make his Liverpool bow after signing from Espanyol.

Sir Alex Ferguson's side have held the upper hand over their north west rivals in recent seasons, winning five and drawing one of their last six league games.

United have a clean bill of health, although the match comes too soon for Cristiano Ronaldo who is expected to return against Villarreal at Old Trafford on Wednesday.

Liverpool (from): Reina, Arbeloa, Aurelio, Carragher, Skrtel, Hyypia, Agger, Dossena, Benayoun, Babel, Riera, Gerrard, Alonso, Mascherano, Plessis, Kuyt, Keane, Torres, Ngog, Cavalieri, El Zhar.

Man Utd (from): Van der Sar, Kuszczak, Foster, Neville, Brown, R Da Silva, Ferdinand, Vidic, Evans, Evra, F Da Silva, Fletcher, O'Shea, Hargreaves, Carrick, Anderson, Scholes, Nani, Possebon, Gibson, Giggs, Rooney, Tevez, Berbatov, Welbeck.

With or without, Gerrard and Torres, we will still win.

Them two arent starting tommorow.

I can predict it already.

Man Utd win 1-0, And its gonna be a boring match, Unless Berbatov does something.

Is right. Hardly surprising though.

Eric Cantona
12th September '08, 06:41 PM
Thought you didnt want to sign him?

Not didn't want, but i would of loved to of seen Huntelaar or Benzema instead maybe, Berbatov is still class player not doubting his ability but for that kinda money, would be been better to sign a player who we can get 10 years out of really.

Danny Trejo

They're both on the bench.

whats_the_score?
13th September '08, 12:01 PM
1157: Well, well. Steven Gerrard and Fernando Torres are only fit enough to sit on the Liverpool bench so Dirk Kuyt and Robbie Keane lead the attack. New signing Albert Riera lines up on the wing. Full team: Reina, Arbeloa, Aurelio, Carragher, Skrtel, Alonso, Mascherano, Riera, Benayoun, Keane, Kuyt. Subs: Cavalieri, Dossena, Hyypia, Ngog, Torres, Gerrard, Babel.

Grimes
13th September '08, 12:10 PM

Danny Trejo
13th September '08, 12:12 PM
I'd replace Kuyt with Babel but I hate Kuyt

whats_the_score?
13th September '08, 12:14 PM
1206: Fergie has gone for a very attacking line-up, with a three-pronged attack featuring Rooney, Tevez and new boy Berbatov. Full Manchester United team: Van der Sar, Brown, Ferdinand, Vidic, Evra, Rooney, Scholes, Carrick, Anderson, Tevez, Berbatov. Subs: Kuszczak, Nani, Evans, Hargreaves, O'Shea, Fletcher, Giggs.

Good half of football, manure started brightly & scored within 3 minutes but liverppol edged there way back in & got a well deserved goal admitedly through a sloppy piece of goalkeeping by van der sar, thereafter manure lost confidence & it was all liverpool untill half time!
