The Argentina captain sustained a thigh problem which forced him off in Sunday's defeat at home to Arsenal but he trained on Tuesday and is expected to retain his place in the starting line-up.

Right-back Glen Johnson, also substituted against the Gunners, spent Tuesday with the physiotherapists and did not train. He is more of a doubt.

Winger Albert Riera still has a hamstring problem so will not be risked while £20million summer signing Alberto Aquilani is likely to find himself on the bench again.

Liverpool (from): Reina, Johnson, Carragher, Agger, Insua, Benayoun, Gerrard, Mascherano, Aquilani, Kuyt, Torres, Cavalieri, Lucas, Aurelio, Skrtel, Kyrgiakos, Ngog, Degen.
