Benayoun and Masch ruled out injured

Liverpool will be without the services of both Yossi Benayoun and Javier Mascherano for tomorrow’s Champions League clash with Fiorentina in Italy.

Mascherano, who was a substitute in the Reds’ 6-1 Premier League victory over Hull City at Anfield, is suffering from flu whilst Benayoun picked up a knock to his leg and is ruled out.

The news means that Albert Riera will most likely keep his place in the starting line-up and Ryan Babel could be included after scoring twice against Hull at the weekend.

The Liverpool squad that has flown to Italy today is: Reina, Johnson, Carragher, Skrtel, Insua, Lucas, Kuyt, Gerrard, Torres, Cavalieri, Aurelio, Dossena, Agger, Plessis, Voronin, Kyrgiakos, Babel, Riera, Spearing.

Fiorentina vs Liverpool gets underway at 7.45pm tomorrow, Tuesday 29th September and it’s live on Sky Sports.
