Carragher and Reina fitness latest - Liverpool FC

Liverpool first-team coach Mike Marsh has revealed that Jamie Carragher and Pepe Reina are available for selection against Aston Villa on Sunday after missing matches through injury.

Carragher was absent when the Reds travelled to Southampton earlier this month, while the Spanish goalkeeper has missed each of the last two fixtures with a calf problem.

Both are now back in contention for a starting berth at Villa Park this weekend.

This is good news for fantasy managers. Carragher is a dirt-cheap defensive option, and Reina is... well, he's an option, for sure.

Liverpool's run-in is favorable with matches at Aston Villa, Reading, Newcastle, and Fulham; while playing West Ham, Chelsea, Everton, and QPR at Anfield.
