Football - Strong Reds squad to face Zenit

Liverpool travelled to Russia to face Zenit St Petersburg with a virtually full strength squad for their Europa League last-32 first leg tie.

January signings Daniel Sturridge and Philippe Coutinho were left at home as they are ineligible having played for Chelsea and Inter Milan respectively in Europe this season.

Otherwise manager Brendan Rodgers selected his strongest squad with Steven Gerrard, Luis Suarez, Jose Reina and Jamie Carragher all included along with youngsters Conor Coady and Suso.
