Cole makes his Liverpool debut

New signing Joe Cole was handed his competitive debut for Liverpool's Europa League third qualifying round second-leg tie at home to Rabotnicki.

As promised manager Roy Hodgson brought in his England quartet, who sat out last week's 2-0 victory, with starts for Cole, Steven Gerrard, Jamie Carragher and Glen Johnson.

Milan Jovanovic made his first appearance at Anfield, having played seven days ago, with Danny Wilson, signed from Rangers last month, named as a substitute.

There was no place in the starting line-up for midfielder Alberto Aquilani, who endured an injury-plagued maiden season having arrived last summer, with promising Spain Under-19 forward Dani Pacheco preferred.

Hodgson opted to change his preferred 4-4-2 system he used at Fulham and adopt the 4-2-3-1 employed by his Anfield predecessor Rafael Benitez.

That meant Gerrard played a deeper midfield role with Cole given the central position behind striker David Ngog he prefers with Pacheco, making his first start, playing on the right.
