Dalglish set to utilise squad

Liverpool have already tasted success at Stamford Bridge this season but their Carling Cup encounter with Chelsea on Tuesday will give the Reds a chance to give some of their current bench warmers a decent run.

Under manager Kenny Dalglish and with the backing of their American owners, the Merseyside club have been able to add more strength in depth to the squad, which has been found wanting in the past. Fans of Carling Cup betting should remember this.

Plenty of money has been spent to try to bolster the squad into a Premier League title challenging outfit.

That might not come about this season but with no European football causing a distraction, Dalglish can afford to put more emphasis into the domestic cups this term, as the club hope to give their fans some much anticipated silverware. 

Whilst Chelsea’s Champions League campaign rests on a knife edge, Liverpool will be keen to book their place in the Carling Cup semi-final but they are likely to make changes from the side that won at The Bridge earlier this month. Anyone betting on football should bear this in mind.

Striker Andy Carroll is in desperate need of game time and he could feature from the off on Tuesday, as the former Newcastle United front-man hopes to live up to his heavy price-tag.

Summer signing Stewart Downing and Jordan Henderson could also do with a decent performance, with neither player really setting Anfield alight since joining the club.

Liverpool will be determined to finish in the top four in the Premier League this season but Dalglish will have the Carling Cup in his mind as a big chance for silverware in his first full campaign back in the Reds hot-seat.
