Ahead of the match Benitez opted to play Martin Skrtel alongside Sami Hyypia at the heart of the Liverpool defence with Carragher moving to right back.

It was a surprise selection that ultimately paid off as the vice-captain was instrumental in setting up the opener with a probing run and cross from the wing.

"We were trying to change things a bit," explained Benitez told liverpoolfc.tv.

"I knew that as a defender he is a good defender but maybe I didn't know he was so good as a winger!"
