Liverpool v Besiktas, Tues 6 November (ko 7.45pm BST)
Itâ€™s â€˜squeaky bum timeâ€™ for the Scousers in the Champions League with the first of three must win games. They surprisingly lost against Besiktas in Istanbul to leave them bottom of the group but we canâ€™t see a repeat with Liverpoolâ€™s twelfth man (the Anfield crowd) back in the team.
Even the players donâ€™t know the side yet but we think Crouch deserves a start after impressing as a late substitute in recent games. Besiktas will probably look to contain them but with ex-West Ham flop, Eduardo Cisse, as the man to mark Gerrard â€“ surely only nerves can prevent talk of â€˜one down, two to goâ€™.
Prediction Liverpool 3-0 Besiktas
