New signing Alvaro Arbeloa is ready to make his Liverpool debut tomorrow.Rafael Benitez has backed his £2.6m signing from Deportivo La Coruna and says the defender is ready to play against Everton tomorrow if needed.
"He is ready to play and, if need be, I'd have no hesitation in playing him against Everton," said the Liverpool boss on his compatriot.
"Alvaro can play right-back or in the centre. I have known about him since his days at the Real Madrid Academy. He's a player with pace and a very good mentality.
"His arrival gives us more options on the right side and I'm sure he can put pressure on Steve Finnan."
