Gerrard Left Out Of Utrecht Squad, Torres In

Liverpool will be without
talismanic captain Steven Gerrard
when they take on Dutch side
Utrecht in the Europa League on
Thursday but will call on the
services of Fernando Torres.
England skipper Gerrard has
been left behind to rest, and
along with Daniel Agger are the
only two fit senior players left at
home as manager Roy Hodgson
names a strong squad for their
second Group K fixture.
Torres, meanwhile, who has
looked desperately out of sorts
this season will travel for what is
his first outing in Europe this
Agger's absence, coupled with
Paul Konchesky's hamstring
injury and Fabio Aurelio's on-
going Achilles tendon problem,
means Martin Kelly is likely to be
forced into action as an
emergency left-back.
Holland forward Dirk Kuyt, who
made a comeback from a
shoulder injury at the weekend,
is set to face his former club.
Team (from): Reina, Johnson,
Skrtel, Carragher, Kelly,
Poulsen, Lucas, Meireles, Kuyt,
Cole, Torres, Jones, Kyrgiakos,
Shelvey, Rodriguez, Spearing,
Babel, Jovanovic, Eccleston,
