Blues Welcome Liverpool

Sunday's kickoff live in front of the Sky Cameras sees Birmingham City take on Liverpool.

Alex McLeish only has a few injury problems to contend with although there will be late tests, and will be looking to his new players to play their part in trying to get all three points.

Vital Quotes:

Alex McLeish: 'Barry Ferguson is right to say we fear nobody but we can't leave that in the dressing room.

'We have to go and perform against a club of Liverpool's magnitude.

'Last year we had a good campaign against the bigger clubs here at St Andrews, aided and abetted, of course, by a hostile crowd.

'I'm looking for the crowd to be at their very best again this season.

'I expect Liverpool to be up there fighting with the best teams for the title and for the top four, of course.

'Under Roy's tutelage I'm sure they will get better, but hopefully it takes them a couple of weeks yet.'

Birmingham Team News:

Czech defender Martin Jiranek and former Arsenal midfielder Alexander Hleb - if he passes a late fitness test on an ankle injury - will be in contention for the home clash with Liverpool.

Chilean Jean Beausejour also arrived on transfer deadline day although he will not join his team-mates until next week as he waits for visa clearance.

Veteran striker Kevin Phillips (thigh) and defender Stuart Parnaby (hamstring) remain on the sidelines due to injury.

Player to watch: Craig Gardner.

Midfielders who get a taste for scoring every so often are worth their weight in gold and Gardner has hit three in his last two games, including a brace against Blackburn.

Liverpool Team News:

Liverpool will also be without a key man, with Dirk Kuyt ruled out because of a shoulder problem.

The Reds are able to call upon Paul Konchesky and Raul Meireles though, and they should help give the visitors a bit of bite.

Player to watch: Fernando Torres

How can you ignore him?
