Mascherano missed Saturday's 4-0 win over Burnley after picking up a pelvic injury while on World Cup duty with Argentina, and he did not return from South America until Sunday following tests on the problem.

But the midfielder has been declared fit, and is expected to figure in a side that, says manager Rafael Benitez, does not have any other injury problems, apart from long term absentees Daniel Agger and Alberto Aquilani.

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