Former PSV player Boudewijn Zenden starts, while Dirk Kuyt serves a one-match ban. The Spanish coach has decided to rest Gerrard and Jamie Carragher tonight, with both England internationals starting on the bench. <u>PSV:</u> Gomes, Fehér, Marcellis, Addo, Salcido, Simons, Cocu, Väyrynen, Culina, Koné and Farfán.
