New setback for Liverpool midfielder Aquilani

Liverpool midfielder Alberto Aquilani has suffered a new setback in attempts to establish himself at Anfield.

The Italy midfielder is suffering from a similar bug to that which affected Martin Skrtel last week.

Benitez told his pre-match press conference: "We have Aquilani who was ill and vomiting, so he will not be in the squad. He's too weak now.

"It is not too serious. We had problems with Skrtel this weekend. He was also vomiting and lost four kilograms."
