Liverpool’s legendary midfielder Steven Gerrard will captain his side against Greek club Olympiakos in his testimonial at Anfield today.
The tie will evoke memories of the Champions League group match in the 2004/05 season, where Gerrard memorably bagged a last minute winner to send his side through to the last 16. The Reds of course went on to win the Champions League, beating AC Milan in what many believe to be the greatest come back in footballing history.
Liverpool will line up with almost their strongest XI, but want away forward Luis Suarez will start from the bench, alongside returning veteran Robbie Fowler, who scored 128 league goals for the Reds.
Liverpool’s line up:
Mignolet, Johnson, Toure, Agger, Enrique; Allen, Gerrard, Lucas; Coutinho, Sterling, Aspas.
