Crouch and Voronin start, Torres is sub

Liverpool must win tonight against Besiktas if they are to have any hope of going into the knockout stages of the Champions League, and manager Rafa Benitez has given the task of scoring the goals to Peter Crouch and Andriy Voronin.

There’s no shortage of attacking options on the bench either – Fernando Torres is back from injury, sitting alongside Dirk Kuyt, Harry Kewell and Marcus Babel.

Steve Finnan is rested for this tie with Arbeloa and Aurelio taking the full-back places, John Arne Riise likely to start pushed up into midfield.

Liverpool: Reina; Arbeloa, Carragher, Hyypia, Aurelio; Benayoun, Mascherano, Gerrard, Riise;Voronin, Crouch.

Subs: Martin, Finnan, Kewell, Torres, Babel, Lucas, Kuyt.
