His absence causes problems for manager Rafael Benitez as fellow centre-back Sotirios Kyrgiakos serves the final game of a three-match suspension.

Jamie Carragher is likely to revert to his usual role in the centre, meaning Philipp Degen or youngster Martin Kelly could come in at right-back as, although Glen Johnson is close to full fitness after a knee problem, he is not in contention yet.

Midfielder Maxi Rodriguez returns to the squad having been ineligible for the trip to Romania.

Liverpool (from): Reina, Degen, Agger, Carragher, Insua, Gerrard, Lucas, Aquilani, Benayoun, Riera, Rodriguez, Ngog, Kuyt, Torres, Cavalieri, Pacheco, Spearing, Darby, Babel, Aurelio, Kelly.
