PREVIEW LFC vs Birmingham

Birmingham manager Steve Bruce is set to name an unchanged side for Saturday's Premier League clash against Liverpool at Anfield.
Bruce is poised to retain the side which started last weekend's 1-0 win against Bolton - Birmingham's first at home this season.
France midfielder Olivier Kapo, who was on target against Bolton, is again set to operate in an advanced role just behind lone striker Cameron Jerome. Club captain Damien Johnson will not be risked after missing the first six games of the season with a hamstring strain, despite making a comeback in the reserves earlier this week.
Liverpool will be without defender Daniel Agger and midfielder Xabi Alonso - both out for six weeks with metatarsal injuries.
But boss Rafael Benitez will have defender John Arne Riise returning to the squad after the Norwegian missed two games with a back problem.
Benitez also has full-back Fabio Aurelio available after recovering from an Achilles problem, the Brazilian coming on as substitute in the 1-1 Champions League draw in Porto for his first senior action of the season.

Liverpool (from): Reina, Finnan, Hyypia, Carragher, Arbeloa, Aurelio, Riise, Pennant, Gerrard, Sissoko, Mascherano, Benayoun, Babel, Kuyt, Crouch, Voronin, Torres, Itandje.
Birmingham (from): Taylor, Kelly, Ridgewell, Djourou, Queudrue, Larsson, Nafti, Muamba, McSheffrey, Kapo, Jerome, Oubina, Schmitz, O'Connor, Parnaby, Forssell, Kingson.
