Lucas Leiva serves a one-match suspension for Liverpool so Jordan Henderson, dropped to the bench for the last two matches, may regain his starting place.

Defenders Daniel Agger (rib) and Glen Johnson (hamstring) are fully fit again after playing in the midweek friendly defeat to Rangers.

Steve Morison is available for Norwich after suffering cramp and being replaced in last week's 3-1 win over Swansea.

Out again with knee injuries, though, are defenders Elliot Ward and Daniel Ayala, while Zak Whitbread's hamstring problem keeps him out and long-term absentee James Vaughan is not expected to challenge for a place again until the New Year.

The Canaries lies ninth on their return to the Premier League, four places behind Liverpool.

Liverpool (from): Reina, Kelly, Carragher, Skrtel, Agger, Enrique, Henderson, Gerrard, Adam, Downing, Kuyt, Suarez, Doni, Johnson, Coates, Aurelio, Flanagan, Spearing, Rodriguez, Bellamy, Carroll.

Norwich (from): Ruddy, Rudd, Naughton, Russell Martin, Barnett, Tierney, Bennett, Pilkington, Fox, Johnson, Hoolahan, Morison, Crofts, Holt, Jackson, Surman, Wilbraham, De Laet.

Saturday's game is live on ESPN.
