Fernando Torres and Pepe Reina will feature in Liverpool's Europa League tie against Utrecht, Roy Hodgson confirmed on Tuesday...

Liverpool are in dire need of an upturn in form after losing three of their last six Premier League matches, and Torres is a player who could use a confidence boost after failing to score in his last four outings. With skipper Steven Gerrard expected to return against Fulham at the weekend, Hodgson confirmed some of his biggest stars will be handed match-time against Utrecht.

"It is a good chance to give some players a run-out," explained Hodgson. "It's a good chance for Jonjo [Shelvey] to show what he can do again. He's played a lot of European games and done very well. But it's also a chance for Ryan Babel. Fernando Torres will be involved in the game, as will Pepe Reina and our centre-backs.
