Liverpool travel the short distance to Wigan tonight for another game that is a must-win. Roy Hodgson has stuck with the same starting eleven that brought Liverpool that important, confidence-building and well-deserved 2-0 win against Chelsea on Sunday.
That means Kelly retains his place at right-back following on from his impressive performance on Sunday, with many people’s man-of-the-match Lucas Leiva given another chance to impress in central midfield.
A lack of one single recognised defender on the bench suggests that Hodgson was limited in terms of what changes he could make, but all eleven starters from Sunday deserved a chance to play tonight.
Liverpool: Reina, Kelly, Carragher, Skrtel, Konchesky, Meireles, Lucas, Gerrard, Maxi, Kuyt, Torres
Subs: Hansen, Jovanovic, Ngog, Spearing, Poulsen, Shelvey, Eccleston.
