Hicks out-muscles Gillett in Liverpool seating battle

Tom Hicks is set to out-muscle Liverpool co-owner George Gillett as the pair prepare to make a rare public appearance at Arsenal's Emirates stadium tomorrow night.

For the Champions League quarterfinal, Liverpool's warring American owners have requested they are not seated together. The Guardian says Hicks is understood to have taken half Liverpool's allocation of 20 seats for the directors' box, and Gillett, who on Friday claimed his business partner was entirely responsible for the criticism directed at their regime, has requested four.

Despite the Americans' presence in London and the possibility that Amanda Staveley, of Dubai International Capital's advisors PCP Capital Partners, may also be at the game, no meeting is scheduled to discuss the future ownership of the club.
