French striker Aliadiere is expected to be sidelined for up to six weeks after breaking a toe in last weekend's 1-0 defeat at Cardiff.

Fellow forward McDonald's fitness will be assessed following his return to training after a hernia operation.

Midfielder Willo Flood is expected to be sidelined with a knee injury he sustained against the Bluebirds, with the club waiting to learn the full extent of the damage.

Emanuel Pogatetz missed out last weekend with a knee problem of his own and is unlikely to feature but Chris Riggott (hamstring) has a chance of making the bench.

There are Liverpool fans arguing that Luis Suarez is nowhere near Diego Costa's sh*t-house league but we have plenty of love for the agitator too. Oh and Spurs...
