Liverpool manager Rafa Benitez admitted his mind was already on Marseille after his side slipped to a 3-1 defeat at Reading.

The Spaniard took off skipper Steven Gerrard and star striker Fernando Torres to make sure they were not ruled out of Tuesday night´s must-win Champions League game in France.

Benitez said: "We were losing 3-1 and we knew it was really difficult so I was trying to protect the key players for the next game."
