Liverpool boss Dalglish may hand new trio debuts against Hull

New Liverpool trio Stewart Downing, Jordan Henderson and Alexander Doni could all see action today against Hull City.

Henderson was in U21 action with England this summer and so sat out our tour of Asia last week, while Doni and Downing did not complete their moves in time to travel to the Far East.

"We will have a look at them and decide what's best," Reds boss Kenny Dalglish told liverpoolfc.tv. "There is certainly no rush for us to play anyone in these pre-season games.

"Stewart has been training for a fortnight and Jordan only started training on Monday.

"Everyone has trained well this week and the players are looking in good shape. Nowadays they come back looking as fit as they were before the break.

"But some have started back later than others and we have to take that into consideration.

"It's a pre-season game and we will treat it as such. We need to use these games to give as much benefit to as many players as we can.

"I'm not sure what the ruling will be in terms of the number of subs we can use. But we will certainly use up our full quota and field as many as possible."
