Rafael Benitez will be wary of the threat posed by the underdog when Liverpool take on Derby at Pride Park on Boxing Day.

After an easy win over Portsmouth at the weekend and a 6-0 demolition of the Rams at Anfield earlier this season, many will see another Reds success as a mere formality - but Benitez is taking nothing for granted.

"Everyone is expecting us to beat Derby, but we have had experience of Reading (3-1 defeat) - so we will have a lot of respect for Derby and will try to win this game," he said. "When you play away against a team which is battling relegation it is always very difficult."
