Benayoun: Unlikely to be risked by Benitez

Benayoun: Unlikely to be risked by Benitez

The Israeli has not played since breaking a rib more than a month ago in the FA Cup defeat by Reading and, although he has been training with the squad, he may be held back for Sunday's match at Manchester City.

January signing Maxi Rodriguez is ineligible having already played in Europe for Atletico Madrid but defender Sotirios Kyrgiakos, currently serving a domestic suspension that rules him out of the trip to Eastlands, is available to face the Romanians in the round-of-32 first-leg tie at Anfield.

Midfielder Alberto Aquilani is back after missing last Wednesday's defeat at Arsenal through illness and, although striker Fernando Torres is recovering well from a knee operation, he is not yet close to a comeback.

Reds (from): Reina, Skrtel, Agger, Carragher, Kyrgiakos, Insua, Gerrard, Lucas, Aquilani, Riera, Ngog, Kuyt, Cavalieri, Pacheco, Spearing, Darby, Babel, Aurelio, Degen, Kelly.
