Liverpool boss Benitez to risk Torres, Gerrard against Birmingham

Liverpool boss Rafa Benitez is ready to risk BOTH Steven Gerrard and Fernando Torres tonight against Birmingham City.

The Sun says it is a desperate bid to get Liverpool's season back on track.

The Reds boss admits neither of his two superstars is fit enough to last 90 minutes, as they both battle against recurring groin problems.

And Benitez will tell the managers of England and Spain it would be pointless picking the duo for next week's international friendlies.

But with Liverpool frantic to turn around a run of just one win in eight games, both are likely to be pressed into action at Anfield.
