Aquilani looks forward for first Premiership start

Alberto Aquilani is being lined up for his first starting appearance for Liverpool having had the carrot of a potential place in the Italy World Cup squad dangled in front of him.

The midfield player has been confined to two appearances as a substitute since joining Liverpool in a £17 million transfer from Roma last summer.

But the ankle injury that has restricted his involvement has cleared up sufficiently for the 25-year-old to step up his training during the international break and Rafael Benítez, the Liverpool manager, is considering naming him in his starting line-up for the match against Manchester City on Saturday.
