Given Blackburn’s fantastic result midweek against Chelsea in the Carling Cup we could be in for a tough afternoon and this is one of those games we simply must get all three points from this match if we are to keep up our chances of making the top four. We are now five unbeaten and even though our performances in all of our last five games have not been by any means top quality we are beginning to show signs of recovery.
Congratulations to Stevie G for reaching the milestone of 500 games and hopefully we can get a good showing from Gerrard who has struggled to put together a run of form. Rovers are a formidable side when at home and have lost just one of their seven matches at Ewood Park and that defeat came on the opening day of the season against Man City.
My Prediction: 1-0 to Liverpool
