Benitez to consider all attacking options available

Liverpool manager Rafael Benitez is looking forward to utilising all his attacking options for their crucial Barclays Premier League run-in.

Deploying Steven Gerrard in a more orthodox central midfield position but with licence to roam forward allowed Benitez to field Maxi Rodriguez, Dirk Kuyt, Ryan Babel and Fernando Torres in front of the Reds captain.
It is unlikely Benitez will be so bold in all six of their remaining league matches - particularly at Birmingham on Sunday and at home to Chelsea on the penultimate weekend of the season - but the Reds boss feels having plenty of choices could be key to them securing fourth place.
"If they can stay fit I think it will be very important because you have more options," said Benitez, whose side travel to Lisbon for the first leg of their Europa League quarter-final against Benfica.
"When you have two games a week it is important to have different players available so you can change the system and you can keep the tempo."
