The main team news ahead of Sunday’s game against Liverpool is that William Gallas looks set to miss the match with a calf injury that seems likely to end his season.That could mean that Ledley King is rushed back into action after featuring at Spurs Lodge in the week although Sebastian Bassong would be a safer option if he is fully fit.

Bale, BAE, Jenas and Gomes are also reported to be out, so Cudicini is likely to deputise in goal with Rose continuing at left back.

In midfield, Steven Pienaar could start on the left with Modric, Sandro and Lennon joining him which would leave VDV behind a front man. That man may well be Crouch again although Pav or Defoe could stand a better chance of getting the nod this time round.

This would be our team to face Liverpool. What’s yours?

    Hopefully see a few of the younger lads on the bench.

    • Exactly the team I would pick.

      Van Der Vaart needs Hutton or even Walker overlapping to play on the right as he likes to cut in side. Corluka needs Lennon in front of him to play well.

      Pienaar works really hard defensively and was brilliant at Everton by allowing creating space for Baines on the overlap.

      Van Der Vaart behind Defoe worked great for the first half away to Villa, his pace will stop Liverpool’s back 4 pushing up and penning us in – and always a chance he could do something on the break (or get caught offside relentlessly or bang it straight at the goal keeper instead of passing).

      Rose deserves another go, though I think we are out of options anyway – and always worth taking a punt on seeing how long Ledders can last IF he’s fit.

      Gome confidence is shot to pieces, as is the teams confidence in him. Cudicini for the last 2 and then…who knows?!

      COYS!

  3. Why on earth would harry play lennon on the left where he’s only half as effective – oh I forgot, he regularly does it!

    I see he’s bigging up Dalglish today – getting his excuses in first!

  6. With respect, you are living in the past prefering King to Kabul. The sooner King is ordered to hang his boots the better because we can then at least try to have a settled defence.

  7. What’s the obsession with playing king, bassong has been ruined by harry this year and using him as bit part player hence why screws up cos knows manager has no confidence in him. Cuducini corluka bassong kaboul rose Lennon sandro modric van der vaart Defoe pav
