Liverpool: Reina, Johnson, Carragher, Skrtel, Konchesky, Maxi, Poulsen, Lucas, Jovanovic, Gerrard, Torres.
Subs: Jones, Agger, Kyrgiakos, Pacheco, Meireles, Ngog, Babel.
Can someone please rationalize and make me understand with all the options available, why Lucas is starting?
Gerrard could easily enjoying playing in the mid field role and pacheco behind Torres. I understand if Meireles is not fully fit yet, but anyone for Lucas.
I feel like I've been morally defeated already having seen his name on the team sheet. Why???????????

I presume Meireles is not starting because he is new to everything. Babel is set to play as a striker this season and Skrtel is more physical than Agger so that's why he's preferred. Pacheco is a too risky selection for Hodgson even though I don't agree. Apparently he hopes Gerro and Torres can win a game for us again.
