Hyypia drops back to the bench and Carragher moves back to his preferred position in the centre of defence as Liverpool’s players try to get smiles back on fans’ faces after the heightened turmoil of the past few days’ off-field events.
There’s also a return to action for Lucas, back on in place of the suspended Mascherano and alongside Xabi Alonso. That front four of Crouch, Gerrard, Kuyt and Babel is back in place, with Peter Crouch injured.
Ex-Reds Friedel and Warnock are amongst Blackburn’s starting line-up today.

Good result today – particularly in the 2nd half. Rafa will soon be able to rest players for CL.
With Rafa speaking out again, will Hicks have the authority to tell him to shut up? I suspect not.
I thought Dallas had finished. The drama, sadly, continues….
I think everyone will come to the conclusion to deal with it at
the end of the season now.
I just hope that the media see it that way
the damage that has been done to our club is certainly not acceptable . What needs to be done is the next pl game at anfield must not attended by the loyal and faithfull supporters many be then these 2 comboys will get the message and ride into the sunset. Its is so sad to see what they have destroyed by being in charge for just over one year SHANKLEY PLEASE HELP US
