Benitez will field strong Liverpool line-up against Reading

Liverpool boss Rafa Benitez will field a strong line-up against FA Cup opponents Reading.

Benitez says the FA Cup is a priority target for this season.

He told Liverpoolfc.tv: "It's always been important but you know that when you're out of the Champions League, the people think about silverware and the FA Cup is very, very important for us.

"We want to progress, we want to go as far as we can.

"We'll have to analyse and consider what to do and we still have another training session. We'll see how the players are but maybe we won't change too many.

"We know we're playing against Tottenham eight days later, so we'll have time. We can put a strong team out.

"Always in the FA Cup it's really important to do things right. Everyone wants to win and it's a massive competition, so we have to be ready."
