Liverpool vs Anzhi Preview:
The Merseysiders will try to come back and rehabilitate after defeat from Udinese. After previous Group A lost game at Anfield, Brendan Rodgers have to overcome the Russian leaders. Liverpool is in need of three points to restore all chances on qualification.
Liverpool again have failed the start of the EPL season. Currently they stand on the twelfth position with nine points after eight matches. But they have two wins in their last three matches. In the Europa League they have had two matches, a 5-3 win over Young Boys and a 3-2 home defeat against Udinese. Liverpool isn’t focused on this competition this season.
Liverpool are in a hard position this season. The only positive situation is that young players have got a real chance, and they are showing excellent quality. Sterling is showing amazing talent as well Suso.
Anzhi has made a great start in the Russian Premier League. They are at the top after twelve matches with twenty nine points. Also, they have won seven league matches in a row. In the Europa League they played a draw against Udinese and have a 2-0 win against Young Boys. They are looking as favourites of this group.
Anzhi continues to throw big amounts of money at players to attract them to the RPL. They have already spend over €100m in two seasons. But it should be said, that they have a result as they lead the Russian League. So Anzhi will participate in the Champions League next season. Their forward Samuel Eto’o is still their main force. He has seven goals in eleven league games.
With the Merseyside derby with Everton on the horizon, Brendan Rodgers will rotate his start eleven for sure! Rodgers can’t count on some injured players as Pepe Reina, Martin Kelly and Fabio Borini. On the other side Steven Gerrard, Daniel Agger, Martin Skrtel, Joe Allen and Raheem Sterling could get rest. Jamie Carragher, Sebastien Coates, Jose Enrique and Stewart Downing will try to replace first team regulars. However, Luis Suarez probably will lead the attack line.
Guus Hiddink has impressed the Russian league teams this season. Hiddink could make only one change from the weekend wining starting line-up, cause of injury of Lassana Diarra. Christopher Samba and Yuriy Zhirkov have already played at Anfield before.
Liverpool line-up: Jones, Wisdom, Carragher, Coates, Enrique, Henderson, Sahin, Shelvey, Downing, Suarez, Assaidi.
