Line-up vs Lyon: Johnson out, Kelly starts

Rafa Benitez has made several changes to the side which lost to Sunderland on Saturday.

Full back Glen Johnson appears to have picked up an injury, meaning a full debut for academy graduate Martin Kelly, usually a centre back, at right back. Unless Benitez chooses to play Carragher right back and Kelly in the middle, which is highly unlikely.

Also out of the side go Martin Skrtel, Fabio Aurelio, Jay Spearing and Ryan Babel.

David Ngog looks set to lead the attack, with Kuyt, Gerrard and Benayoun behind him. Javier Mascherano is recalled into midfield.

Liverpool: Reina, Kelly, Carragher, Agger, Insua, Mascherano, Lucas, Kuyt, Benayoun, Gerrard, Ngog.
Subs: Subs: Cavalieri, Skrtel, Dossena, Babel, Voronin, Spearing, Darby.
