The game kicks off at 3pm from Anfield and the game will be streamed live on LFC TV which is a subscription only site but they are offering a 24 hour pass for a measly £1 so there is no excuse not to get involved – LFC are also donating the first £3 of every 1 month £7 subscription to charity and all donations go to Liverpool’s official charity LFC Foundation which helps many smaller charities across the city.

Now for the teams:

Battles to watch out for

Riise and Bellamy; Bellamy famously hit Riise with a golf club  after a fracas, is all forgiven?

Drogba and Terry; Same club but on different teams today, expect a naughty challenge or two, not too naughty of course, Mourinho would go nuts!

Carragher and Gerrard; When the situation allows itself expect these two to be very funny and probably a bit dirty too.

Luis Garcia and John Terry; Luis Garcia scored the famous ‘ghost goal’ past Chelsea and knocked them out of the Champions League in 04/05, expect revenge.

Carragher and Henry/Suarez and Torres; Because why the fuck not, he’ll be making his presence felt.

It promises to be a thoroughly entertaining match and for a great cause, we’re chuffed so many high profile players are getting involved and can’t wait to see how the game plays out.

Our Prediction; 5-3 to Gerrard, Suarez,Henry and Torres is too much for any team!
