Rafa Benitez has thrown a surprise by starting Peter Crouch alongside Fernando Torres in place of Ryan Babel tonight. Some reports suggest Babel may have a minor injury.

The midfield lines up with Gerrard, Kuyt, Mascherano and Alonso. Sami Hyypia comes back in alongside Skrtel with Carragher moving back to right back and Aurelio left back.

Arsenal name the same team which started the first leg at the Emirates.
