Benitez keen to see how Liverpool youngsters handle Leeds atmosphere

Liverpool boss Rafa Benitez is keen to see how his young players handle a full house at Carling Cup opponents Leeds United tonight.

He told liverpoolfc.tv: "For sure it will be a tough game. We know they will have their fans behind them. I watched some games and I know it will be tough. They are strong and on fire at the moment. They have a lot of confidence and work hard. They try to play direct football but can also play on the ground - so they have a mix. And they have some good players, so it will be difficult.

"Yes, for our players to play in front of 37,000 people will be good. It's an opportunity for us and it's a massive game for Leeds."
