Despite not performing well in the domestic league, a trophy this season will be regarded as a major success for Kenny Dalglish.
“There are no injuries from the [Brighton] game as far as we know but we had a couple on Friday and Saturday with Bellars and Daniel Agger. We’ll just have to see how they are but they should be alright,” Dalglish said. “Daniel Agger and Martin Skrtel have been two of our best players. I’ve got to wait my turn, just as other players had to wait their turn when I’d been playing for so long,” Liverpool defender Jamie Carragher said ahead of the match. Carragher was part of the numerous trophy winning teams of Liverpool.
