Dalglish will select strong Liverpool for Oldham Cup tie

Liverpool boss Kenny Dalglish will select a strong line-up for their FA Cup clash with Oldham Athletic.

One player hoping to be involved is fit again Fabio Aurelio.

Dalglish told liverpoolfc.tv: "The FA Cup has been undermined in many ways and in many quarters, for varying reasons. But we certainly won't ever undermine it.

"It's a competition that's there to be won so we'll go into the Oldham game with the same attitude and desire as we went into the Carling Cup. The Carling Cup is something people have done the same with - undermined and undervalued. But we went about our job as well as we possibly could and we've got our reward for that.

"We've always said how strong the squad is and maybe it's an opportunity for us to give the people in that squad the gratitude they deserve by giving them an opportunity to start the game but that's not to say we're undermining or being disrespectful in any way. We'll treat Oldham with complete respect.

"Fabio is fit and available so we're pretty well off for players."
