Next Up: Birmingham City (h)

Liverpool return to Merseyside after the crushing blow of conceding late in Lyon and see their Champions League hopes fade dramatically with the visit of Birmingham City to Anfield.

The Reds will be looking to turn their Premier League fortunes around, having won only once in their last four games, and losing the other three.

Rafa Benitez will be without Jamie Carragher and Phillip Degen, who are serving suspensions for their red cards against Fulham.

Steven Gerrard could be just one of players still on Liverpool’s injury list come Monday.
