Liverpool must cope without star trio

All were injured in the midweek FA Cup exit to Reading, with Torres requiring knee surgery which will keep him out for six weeks, Benayoun sustaining a broken rib likely to sideline him for a month and Gerrard out for a fortnight with a hamstring problem.
Goalkeeper Jose Reina, who missed out on Wednesday with a slight back injury, will be assessed late on.
Defensive midfielder Javier Mascherano returns after a four-match suspension and new signing Maxi Rodriguez will also be involved after signing from Atletico Madrid in midweek.
Winger Albert Riera is included again after recovering from a hamstring problem but Dutch forward Ryan Babel has been dropped from the squad.
Kick-off is at 12.45pm.
Liverpool (from): Reina, Degen, Skrtel, Carragher, Agger, Insua, Aquilani, Lucas, Rodriguez, Ngog, Kuyt, Aurelio, Cavalieri, Kyrgiakos, Pacheco, Spearing, Darby.
