Benitez insists Liverpool miss Leeds in Premier League

Rafa Benitez insists everyone at Liverpool wants Leeds United to return to the Premier League.

Ahead of tonight's Carling Cup tie, the Liverpool manager said: "It a real surprise to me that they have fallen so far. I recall one of the first games I saw in England was between Leeds and Manchester United with Harry Kewell playing against Jaap Stam, that was not so long ago.

"It is a shock and disappointment for everyone to see Leeds in the position they are in now. I am aware that back in previous years, there was a big rivalry between Leeds and Liverpool.

"In those days the clubs met in cup finals, and Leeds have not forgotten those days."
