RAFA BENITEZ admits he faces a selection dilemma at left-back for tomorrow's Premier League clash with Burnley at Anfield. Youngster Emiliano Insua has got the nod ahead of Italian Andrea Dossena in the Reds' opening four games but Fabio Aurelio is now pressing for a recall. The Brazilian has proved his fitness following knee surgery and Benitez believes the Reds have missed the 29-year-old. All three have been trying to impress at Melwood during the international break. Benitez said: 'Fabio is a player with quality. His delivery into the box, especially when we play at home, is excellent. He provides good passes and crosses which is really important. 'He has no match fitness but he is much better and he hasn't been away with his country so he has been training hard. Fabio knows exactly what we expect from him. 'Insua has been doing really well. He impressed last season when we needed him and it's the same this season. 'We have really good competition now on the left with Insua, Aurelio and Dossena.
