Liverpool v Portsmouth

After the result against Wigan, this is quite simply a game that Liverpool have to win if they are to have any chance of finishing fourth. I don't think it will be pretty, but I do expect Liverpool to win. The Reds supporters realise that losing games is something that happens but when you lose playing negative football it is a different story. If I were manager Rafa Benitez I would have my tin hat on and be demanding fight from my players to win games.

The pressure is off Portsmouth a little bit now that administration has essentially sealed their relegation. They won 2-1 at Burnley and then beat Birmingham 2-0 in the Cup, but then they suffered a bit of a reality check midweek in the league fixture with Alex McLeish's side, going down 2-1 at home. With the exception of a few players this is a very ordinary Liverpool team but they should have enough to beat Portsmouth.

Prediction: 2-0
