Wednesday Match preview – Premier League
Kenny Dalglish returns to Premier League management as Liverpool take on Blackpool in a re-arranged match at Bloomfield Road.
This Barclays Premier League fixture was postponed in December because of a frozen pitch.
Now it will be Dalglish’s first league match in charge of Liverpool since taking over from Roy Hodgson.
Liverpool Vs Blackpool
Blackpool are aiming to complete a memorable double over Liverpool having already won 2-1 at Anfield in October.
Charlie Adam fired the visitors in front from the penalty spot on 29 minutes with Luke Varney doubling the advantage on the stroke of half-time.
Although Sotirios Kyrgiakos pulled one back six minutes after the break, the newly-promoted side held on for a famous victory.
The Merseysiders have not beaten Blackpool in four meetings since September 1966 when they won 2-1 at Bloomfield Road in the elderly First Division. The Seasiders have won six and drawn six.
Both sides will be looking to bounce back from FA Cup defeats. The second-string Seasiders went down 2-0 at League One Southampton while Liverpool lost 1-0 at Manchester United.
