Gerrard is the biggest concern of the groin injury victims but he received treatment on Friday, and that will continue right up until the Anfield clash.

Torres and Johnson are much closer to being confirmed in the starting line-up ahead of the match but winger Albert Riera (hamstring) and defenders Martin Kelly (ankle) and Sotirios Kyrgiakos (knee) are out and midfielder Alberto Aquilani - who played for the reserves on Wednesday - will not be considered.

Kick-off 2pm.

Liverpool (from): Reina, Johnson, Carragher, Agger, Skrtel, Aurelio, Insua, Mascherano, Babel, Lucas, Kuyt, Benayoun, Gerrard, Torres, Voronin, Ngog, Spearing, Plessis, Dossena, Cavalieri.
