Line-up vs Rapid Vienna

Javier Mascherano is named amongst Liverpool’s substitutes for this evening’s pre-season friendly against Rapid Vienna in Austria.

The Reds’ Spanish contingent, who were given extra leave for international duty in the FIFA Confederations Cup, are all at the stadium but won’t take part in the action.

Liverpool: Cavalieri, Degen, Insua, Carragher, Ayala, Gerrard, Plessis, Babel, El Zhar, Nemeth, Voronin.

Subs: Martin, Gulacsi, Kelly, San Jose, Pacheco, Benayoun, Kuyt, Mascherano, Lucas, Ngog, Spearing, Skrtel.

Kick-off at the Ernst Happel Stadium is 6.15pm (UK) and live text commentary will be available on This Is Anfield shortly.
