Yossi and Masch not to be part of the Italian job

Liverpool will be without defensive midfielder Javier Mascherano and in-form winger Yossi Benayoun when they face Fiorentina in the Champions League in Italy on Tuesday evening.

Both missed training today. Mascherano is sick, while Benayoun suffered a leg injury in the Reds' 6-1 demolition of Hull City on Saturday.Neither have travelled with the squad to Florence.

Spanish winger Albert Riera may now retain his place in the starting line-up or Fabio Aurelio could be drafted in on the left-hand side of midfield should Benitez choose to adopt a more cautious approach.

Full squad: Reina, Johnson, Carragher, Skrtel, Insua, Lucas, Kuyt, Gerrard, Torres, Cavalieri, Aurelio, Dossena, Agger, Plessis, Voronin, Kyrgiakos, Babel, Riera, Spearing.
