Rafa Benitez 300[LNB]RAFA BENITEZ has revealed he would not hesitate to use the services of Marianna Kovacevic again after her 'miracle cure' restored four Liverpool players to fitness.[LNB]Yossi Benayoun, Fabio Aurelio, Albert Riera and Glen Johnson could all figure against Manchester City this afternoon after flying to see Kovacevic in Belgrade.[LNB]Her revolutionary idea of massaging injured muscles with a cream made up of liquid from horse placenta has ensured that quartet are available again well ahead of time. [LNB]Benayoun and Riera, for example, were initially ruled out for up to a month after tearing their hamstrings against Birmingham 12 days ago but both trained normally yesterday.[LNB]A number of clubs have sought Kovacevic's help - Chelsea midfielder Frank Lampard is understood to be the latest player to see her - and Benitez will certainly use her again.[LNB]'We knew different players in the Premier League had used this before and it was a good treatment for muscle injury,' said Benitez, whose side face Manchester City today.[LNB]'It's all about using the placenta and a machine with waves. They put a cream on the muscle and they massage the area (that is effected) - it's not about injections.[LNB]'We had two players there and the treatment was good. We knew (Robin) van Persie (of Arsenal) was around, (Pablo) Zabaleta and (Vincent) Kompany of (City) were there too.
