The Danish centre-back is struggling with a back injury, while fellow defender Martin Skrtel is still doubtful following the damaged jaw he sustained in the defeat at Tottenham on Sunday.

Skrtel trained on Tuesday, but boss Rafael Benitez will make a late decision on whether the 24-year-old can be risked. Youngster Daniel Ayala could play alongside Jamie Carragher, who has recovered from the head injury he suffered at Spurs.

Reds (from): Reina, Johnson, Carragher, Skrtel, Ayala, Dossena, Insua, Kuyt, Voronin, Gerrard, Mascherano, Lucas, Babel, Benayoun, Torres, Cavalieri, Spearing, Kelly, Ngog, Plessis, Degen, Riera.
