Sunday Morning Snippets

Liverpool take on fellow unbeaten rivals Arsenal this afternoon (4pm) and Rafa Benitez is expected to be able to name Spaniards Xabi Alonso and Fernando Torres in the team after both have been missing with injuries recently.

Jermaine Pennant won’t feature after being ruled out for around 10 weeks, meaning Babel, Benayoun, or even Gerrard, could occupy the right midfield spot against Arsene Wenger’s side.
