Weekend Preview

Due to my busy schedule, I'll have to do a quick one, which is concentrating on none other than Liverpool !

Kuyt Won't Be Risked

Dirk Kuyt will not be risked against Blackburn today but Robbie Fowler and Momo Sissoko could play, despite concerns over their fitness earlier in the week.

Kuyt injured his ankle while playing for Holland in Bulgaria last weekend but the problem is not has bad as first feared and Rafael Benitez is hopeful that his Dutch striker will be available for the midweek trip to Bordeaux.

"I spoke with the doctor, and we think it's better if Kuyt is not involved for this game. But he is better and we hope he will be okay for the next game," says Benitez.

The boss is also optimistic that Fowler (back) and Sissoko (ankle) will be fit to face Rovers, adding: "Robbie Fowler had a problem with his back, but we think he'll be available, and Momo Sissoko's ankle isn't too bad."

Daniel Agger's broken hand, meanwhile, is not expected to rule him out of action.

Therefore, I expect Crouch and Bellamy to start, with Robbie Fowler making a substitute appearance finally, his first after the opening day draw with Sheffield United.

Saturday October 14th: LIVERPOOL vs Blackburn (Anfield) - 9.55pm GMT +8hrs
