After a much needed 2-1 win over Wigan on Wednesday, Rafa Benitez’s side will be looking to keep some momentum going with a win against bottom club Pompey.

Fernando Torres should start for Liverpool after playing only the last 25 minutes against Wigan. Lucas Leiva is likely to return to the midfield.

This fixture last season saw a last-gasp Torres goal clinch victory as Liverpool came from behind to win 3-2, and put themselves top of the table. How times change!

It’s an early kick-off which means a very early start for traveling Reds, 12:45 at Fratton Park, live on Sky Sports.
