    Benitez banking on experience

    Rafael Benitez believes his Liverpool side's experience of playing in big matches will stand them in good stead going into Tuesday night's crunch Champions League showdown with Marseille.

    Only a win at the Stade Velodrome will guarantee the Reds a spot in the knockout stages of a tournament they won in 2005 and were losing finalists in last season.

    With a side crammed full of established internationals who have played at the highest level for years, Benitez knows the Merseysiders will not be lacking in experience.

    And the Spaniard feels that could be a vital factor in tonight's make-or-break clash in the south of France.

    'We know how to play under pressure,' said Benitez.

    'If you want to win trophies, you must play in finals. And for us, this is like a final.

    'We have experience of these situations. It is an important game but I have been hearing the same for one or two months. We know the situation we are in.'

    The other three English teams in this season's Champions League - Chelsea, Arsenal and Manchester United - have already qualified, leaving Liverpool to battle it out on the final round of group matches to join them in the knockout phase.

    It was always going to be a mountain to climb for the Reds from the moment they were defeated 1-0 at home by Marseille in October, but big victories since over Besiktas (8-0) and Porto (4-1) mean they are still in with a shout of a top-two finish in Group A.

    'It's clear we made a big mistake losing (to Marseille) at home,' Benitez said.

    'It is not easy to qualify every year. We were in a very good position last year but this year we need to play really well in Marseille if we are to qualify.

    'But that is football. We needed to focus on this, prepare and look to find solutions for this game.

    'We have seen a lot of their games in a row, 10 games from when we played them until now, and we know a lot about their team.'

    Ryan Babel should be handed a starting place by Benitez after being on the bench for the 3-1 defeat to Reading on Saturday.

    The Dutchman scored two in the thrashing of Besiktas at Anfield, and he said that win and the victory over Porto has injected some confidence into the team.

    'These games will definitely make us believe we can reach the level we need to,' said the winger.

    'If you play for Liverpool, there is always pressure but for the boys this is just another game - but we know how important it is.'

    Striker Fernando Torres has reiterated his support for the manager, claiming it would be a 'mistake' for the club to replace him.

    Benitez's future remains uncertain despite an apparent thaw in his relationship with owners George Gillett and Tom Hicks following a disagreement over transfer policy.

    Torres said: 'It would be a huge mistake to think about changing the manager if we don't get the win we need.

    'Rafa Benitez has done so much for this club and the staff, players and fans are behind him.

    'It is the most important match since I joined.'

    CAPELLO FOR ENGLAND!!

    Capello set for England talks

    The Football Association are ready to make Fabio Capello the new England manager.

    Confirmation of Jose Mourinho's withdrawal from the race to succeed Steve McClaren has paved the way for Capello to take the job, providing he backs up a publicly-stated desire to lead England back to the pinnacle of the international game in face-to-face meetings with FA chief executive Brian Barwick.

    While the pair, and FA director of football development Sir Trevor Brooking, have yet to meet, talks have taken place with Capello's advisors.

    It is anticipated the 61-year-old will fly into London at some point within the next 48 hours and, although Martin O'Neill, Marcello Lippi and Jurgen Klinsmann continue to be discussed, it now appears inevitable Capello will get the job.

    A veteran of nine title wins during an illustrious career which has encompassed spells at Juventus, AC Milan and Real Madrid, Capello certainly fits the 'world-class' tag Barwick insisted was the minimum criteria required to replace McClaren, who was axed in the wake of England's failure to reach Euro 2008.

    Capello's name immediately cropped up once McClaren's dismissal was confirmed and, with FA insiders quickly stating the Italian's inability to speak English would not prevent him getting the job, was always one of the favourites.

    Mourinho's knowledge of the English game - and popularity among the fans - would have made him a better bet but now that option has been ruled out, Capello has arguably the most impressive CV among the remaining plausible candidates, even though fellow countryman Marcello Lippi steered Italy to World Cup glory last summer.

    Although Capello has been out of work since leaving Real Madrid in June, he is one of the most respected coaches in the game, allying a mental toughness which saw him axe - and then restore - David Beckham from the Spanish giants' starting line-up last term, with an indisputed capability of building successful teams.

    It has already been suggested former Chelsea favourite Gianfranco Zola could be brought into his coaching team, a move that would win favour with English fans, as well as aiding Capello in his battle against the language barrier.

    Former England skipper Alan Shearer and current under-21 coach Stuart Pearce may also be heavily involved if, as appears increasingly likely, Capello is installed.

    Ironically, given the prominence Beckham played in his last job, Capello's first game in charge would be against Switzerland at Wembley on February 6, when the LA Galaxy midfielder is likely to win his 100th cap.

    Fernando Torres came from Spain, Olé, Olé
    He came to make us great again, Olé, Olé
    The Spion Kop will roar him on
    He scores the goals and he scores for fun
    And we all get blind drunk
