    Our reserve line-up against the Mancs:

    Chris Kirkland

    Jon Otsemobor - David Raven - Carl Medjani - Zak Whitbread

    Michael Foley - Andrew Wright - John Welsh - Chris Butler

    Darren Potter - Robbie Foy

    Not bad for the biggest clash the reserves have. Just one player out of that lot is not British (I knew Whitbread is a US citizen, but he qualifies for England).

    And Semmi, Welsh, Raven, Kirkland and Butler all have an outstanding chance of making into first team action within the next two to three years. The Academy is doing very well.

    That's cool, but it doesn't change the fact that he remains eligible for England. I don't expect him to do a Hargreaves on you, mind.

    ”He has a great pedigree and already played some minutes in a preseason friendly with the first team,” Rongen said. “With the reserve team he gets a lot of quality matches. He’s lanky, he has a good left foot and fits in well on both sides of the ball as a left-sided defender. He’s good in the air, communicates well and is a guy who will make our team and is knocking on the door as a starter.”

    Reserve Match Report from the excellent website:-

    Liverpool Res 0 - Man Utd Res 1

    "A single goal from Daniel Nardiello condemned Liverpool's second string to defeat at the hands of Manchester United's reserves in Chester tonight.

    Hughie McAuley fielded a youthful side with only Chris Kirkland in goal and John Welsh in midfield having any first team experience.

    Frenchman Carl Medjani was restored to the side at central defence while Jon Otsemobor was back in action after recovering from a bullet to the backside.

    Medjani and Zak Whitbread linked up well together at centre back in a game dominated by tough defending.

    Darren Potter also had a good game despite being out of position. Scottish youth international Robbie Foy had his moments in the match but they where few and far between.

    Being honest, United probably just deserved their victory as they where much the better side in the second half.

    They took the lead with 15 minutes to go moments after Potter went close to putting Liverpool in front. Nardiello was put through by David Jones and finished superbly past Chris Kirkland who otherwise had a decent 90 minute run out.

    But it was a disappointing night all round for McAuley's men. No defeat to United is nice.

    Liverpool Team: Kirkland, Otsemobor, Medjani, Whitbread, Vaughan, Foley Sheridan, Wright (Massie), Welsh, Butler, Potter, Foy.

    Unused Subs: Raven, Luzi (GK), Flynn, Smith.

    Next Up: Blackburn Rovers, October 22nd, Away, 7pm."
