Gérard Houllier has named a 17-man squad for the visit of Marseille. Ben Arfa, Benzema, Berthod, Benzema, Diatta and Pedretti will all train on Tuesday.

The Squad:

Abidal, Carew, Clément, Clerc, Coupet, Cris, Diarra, Fred, Govou, Juninho, Malouda, Monsoreau, Müller, Réveillère, Tiago, Vercoutre, Wiltord

Gérard Houllier:
"This match is very important for the players and the club. I'm expecting an intense contest with plenty of action. We have prepared ourselves as we would for a Champions League clash. We will benefit from our European experience. It's not every day that this club plays a quarter-final of the Coupe de France, especially at the Stade Gerland and without the distractions of other competitions. Marseille will play with an attacking formation. I will choose my team accordingly, but also with an eye on this weekend's game against PSG and also last weekend's match against Nice. The Coupe de France is about the players, it's their competition and I can feel they want it."
