Liverpool vs. Middlesbrough: Capital One Cup

Post by iftikhar on Sun Sep 21, 2014 4:38 pm

The teams have not met since February 2009 when the Reds went down to a 2-0 Premier League defeat at the Riverside Stadium. Middlesbrough's last visit to Anfield came earlier in that 2008-09 season when late goals from Jamie Carragher and Steven Gerrard secured a 2-1 win for Liverpool. The last time the sides went head to head in the League Cup was November 2004. Two late goals from Neil Mellor sealed a 2-0 win for Liverpool at Anfield.

Middlesbrough is currently fifth in the league table having won their last three games. Liverpool is expected to rest as many first-team regulars possible; but given the spate of injuries, some are like to start nevertheless.

Agree with your team but i still see us losing this game at this rate rofl

We have no confidence whatsoever. Im just glad Gerrard is rested.

Im scared Kolo would start this game. Also i see Rodgers panicking and playing Balotelli.

Suso wont even feature imo, Rumors saying he has agreed a deal with Milan.

Coming off the back of an emphatic 4-0 win against Brentford, Boro will be in high spirits and full of confidence under the management of ex-Real Madrid player and assistant Aitor Karanka. One of Karanka’s potential threats is that of his compatriot Enrique García, better known as Kike. The 24 year old Spaniard has netted on 5 occasions in 10 appearances since arriving at The Riverside from Murcia for a reported fee of £2.7M and is proving to be a shrewd piece of business from Karanka and the club.

Another player enjoying a great run of form for Middleborough is current captain Grant Leadbitter who has scored 6 in his last 6 for the club putting him on 7 goals in all competitions, a fine return from midfield. Leadbitter could provide a problem for Liverpool’s defence on Tuesday as his set piece delivery has been lauded recently in the Championship and has been facetiously compared to Brazil legend Roberto Carlos by the Boro faithful.

Others players to watch on the night include ex-Red Daniel Ayala, who made 5 appearances for Liverpool in 09-10 Premier League campaign before leaving the club to play for numerous Championship sides and recently Norwich back in the top flight. Belgian striker Jelle Vossen (on loan from Genk) is another player to keep an eye on. Despite having not scored in his opening three appearances for the club, he boasts 12 appearances for his country and Champions League experience with his parent club.

Wingers Patrick Adomah and Emilio Nsue are two more players in form and could provide problems down the flanks with the latter having played for Spain youth ranks up to Under 21 level.

Don't really care about this game, just hoping that players like Gerrard, Henderson and Sterling will get a day off.

Rossiter/Lucas
Coutinho - Lallana
Markovic

Dont think Rossiter will start and i dont see Johnson making it in time. Manquillo over there. Rest is okay. But i cant fathom Lucas handling their midfield on his own.

Im nervous for this one rofl

I think Henderson would have been rested anyway and Suso might fill-in for Coutinho.

Enrique!

I would target FA cup specifically to win a silverware. If we win both capital one cup and FA cup, it is off course welcome but with the squad we have I would target FA cup and top 4 place :coffee:
