Liverpool’s Wales international Craig Bellamy has been left on the bench for the Carling Cup final against hometown club Cardiff at Wembley.
The 32-year-old and Dirk Kuyt were the two players to be left out of the side which played the second leg of the semi-final against Manchester City as Luis Suarez, who was banned at the time, and Andy Carroll come in.
Cardiff have made four changes from their semi-final win over Crystal Palace, with Kevin McNaughton, Mark Hudson, Rudy Gestede and Joe Mason all coming in - meaning Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard’s cousin Anthony has to be satisfied with a place on the Bluebirds’ bench.
Cardiff: Heaton, McNaughton, Hudson, Turner, Taylor, Cowie, Whittingham, Gunnarsson, Mason, Miller, Gestede.
Subs: Marshall, Kiss, Gerrard, Earnshaw, Conway, Naylor, Blake.
Liverpool: Reina, Johnson, Skrtel, Agger, Jose Enrique, Henderson, Gerrard, Adam, Downing, Suarez, Carroll.
Subs: Doni, Maxi, Kuyt, Spearing, Carragher, Kelly, Bellamy.
Referee: Mark Clattenburg.
