The whispers we mentioned earlier were true – Craig Bellamy wasn't fit to face Manchester United today. Rafael Benitez has chosen Dirk Kuyt to start, with Crouch on the bench.
It's a case of waiting and seeing how they'll actually line up, but it seems either Garcia or Gerrard will be on the right side of midfield, with the other one playing behind Kuyt. Mark Gonzalez is also picked to start.
