Liverpool’s first home match of the 2008/09 Premier League season sees Middlesbrough as visitors. Both teams enjoyed victories in the north east on the opening day, Boro defeating Tottenham and Liverpool claiming three points at Sunderland.

Rafa Benitez should have Ryan Babel back from Olympic duty after the Dutch were eliminated in the quarter finals, he is still without Lucas and Mascherano though.

Before this match there’s international friendlies to interrupt things already, Benitez will be hoping all his players return injury-free.

This fixture last season saw Fernando Torres bag a sensational hat-trick in a 3-2 win for the home side.

More previews and team news to follow.
