Left-back Konchesky is likely to start, having had over a week to settle in after completing his transfer deadline day move from Fulham but Meireles may have to settle for a place on the bench having been away with Portugal.

Forward Dirk Kuyt is out with a shoulder injury sustained while away with Holland while Joe Cole serves the final game of his three-match suspension.

Striker David Ngog has recovered from hamstring injury but defender Fabio Aurelio still has a niggling Achilles tendon problem.

Kick-off 4pm.

Liverpool (from): Reina, Johnson, Carragher, Skrtel, Agger, Konchesky, Lucas, Poulsen, Rodriguez, Gerrard, Jovanovic, Torres, Jones, Meireles, Pacheco, Babel, Ngog, Krygiakos.
