I have to agree with Jimbo here... to be honest the last game you want, after an early cup exit is a away game at Anfield

Liverpool looked pretty decent last night in their champions league game.. ermm which made me meel very very nervous as we are the next team to play them... to be honest I think every derby fan is expecting us to get nothing from the game.. and to be honest I can only see one-way traffic for the whole game.. and Liverpool to score and score heavily against us

MATCH PREVIEW: LIVERPOOL v DERBY
Posted on: Thu 30 Aug 2007

Neither side will want to go into the September international break on the back of a disappointing result at Anfield.

Derby are still searching for their first win of the Premier League season while Liverpool will want to keep in with the leading pack.

The Merseysiders have won two and drawn one of their opening three games and sit handily placed in fourth.

They're three points behind leaders Chelsea - the only side to deny them victory - but with a game in hand due to European commitments.

The 2005 winners and 2007 runners-up are in the group stages of the Champions League again and looking strong after thumping French side Toulouse 4-0 in midweek.

Their group opponents will be revealed later today but the Premier League is their holy grail.

Liverpool haven't been crowned English champions since 1990 and are yet to taste title glory in the Premier League era.

It's too long a gap for the club that has won the league more than any other, and their followers will be looking at Saturday's game as one they should win if they're going to have serious aspirations.

MATCH QUOTE

Defender Steve Finnan told www.liverpoolfc.tv: "It's been a good start for us and hopefully that will continue on Saturday

"We fully respect them because they are in the Premier League.

"Yes, we're at home, but sometimes these games can be tricky because they'll be focused and will probably get a lot of men behind the ball. We can't let that frustrate us.

"We've got good enough players to break teams down now, so if we play to our potential, hopefully we'll pick up the three points."

TEAM NEWS


Manager Rafa Bentiez has the luxury of being able to rotate his squad at will and field a supposedly weakened side - which still includes players with plenty of international pedigree - when he chooses.

He mixed things around in midweek but Liverpool still hammered four past French side Toulouse in the Champions League qualifier.

And that's without record signing Fernando Torres, who is expected to return to the side to face Derby.

Inspirational skipper Steven Gerrard is still a doubt with the toe injury that forced him to miss England's recent friendly with Germany, as well as the game against Toulouse.

Jamie Carragher sits it out with a broken rib, but otherwise Benitez has plenty of options.

MATCH FACTS

Derby haven't tasted victory on Merseyside since November 1998, when Kevin Harper and Paulo Wanchope scored the goals to secure a 2-1 victory.

Liverpool v Derby is a game that goes all the way back to the end of the 19th Century when the Reds took the spoils twice in the 1894/95 season.

If Stephen Pearson plays for Derby he will be making his 150th career league appearance.

THE REFEREE

Staffordshire's Alan Wiley is a vastly experienced official who has been on the Premier League circuit for many years.

Wiley has taken charge of four games this season with 15 yellow cards issued, and one red - to Blackburn's Ryan Nelsen.

His last Derby assignment came in March 2006 as two Inigo Idiakez goals saw off Crystal Palace in a dramatic 2-1 win at Pride Park.

TICKETS

Derby fans have snapped up their entire allocation of almost 3,000 seats in the away end.

Feilhaber is not dead/injured/MIA - he played an hour for the reserves last night, and hopes to be involved on saturday, he's not fully fit but impressed. Still don't see why he didn't play any part against Blackpool though.

Despite that I hate to be pessimistic in any situation my team be in , but I can`t blame you .. p

This game will be vs Liverpool who has been starting this season very well and did v.good results .

I think which make this opponent a little bit difficult to to Derby coz it `ll be at Anfield . you know Liverpool at home is very tough team and usually get the complete 3 points there .

I wish to see an interesting game .

I don't think me n Jimbo are really exaggerating the situation.. after watchin the first 4 games.. that lack of any sort of firepower really does limit your ability to win games of football!!

After still no signings... it is very unlikely that any new players will feature in the Liverpool game.. apart from hopefully Feilhaber... well I am still not feeling optimstic.. a draw would be an absolute wonderful result but I can't see it happening!!

Jibril, you said it yourself, if we give Liverpool the amount of time and space we've given teams in the last 3 games, it will be a massacre.

The pace and energy of Mears and Davis were a big part of our better performances in the first two games, both got injured, and without them we've been hopeless.

I'm trying to find some optimism but I am really struggling.

well , Derby need to close their operation field with the beginning of the game , to stop Liverpool key players and not give them a chance to score early . i mean it`s so important for Derby not to open the game for liverpool . take care

Injury News

David Jones out with a groin problem joining Giles Barnes, so that's our 2 most skillful players out now, just what we need.

There are also doubts over Leaocock Feilhaber and Lewis.


There is some good news though, both Mears and Davis are fit too play.

Good question. Not sure if he's even had a shot on target yet, and has been dropped for Craig Fagan Who's actually played far better than he has. Hopefully he will settle in soon and start performing, he's just looked way off the pace so far.

Well Miller isn't available for tomorrow, so personally think we should play 4-5-1, and look to make it hard for Liverpool, shame Jones is injured though, I'd have started him, hopefully Feilhaber is fit enough for a surprise start.

Personally would like up line this as long as everyone is fit.

Bywater

Mears - Leacock - Davis - McEveley

Teale - Oakley - Feilhaber - Pearson - Fagan

Howard

Bench: Price, Todd, Beardsley, Earnshaw, Camara

I think it'll be a hard match for us, because the expectation is high and we sometimes drop points in these cases. I think if we keep the ball and focus, then we can do it and especially if we push down the wings.

Vicente05 will be back
Kroos05
is the future

No Kroos no party baby!!!!!!!!!!
