Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard will miss the visit of Swansea after being ruled out for the next fortnight with an ankle infection.
Gerrard’s absence means midfielder Jordan Henderson, who deputised in last week’s win at West Brom, is likely to keep his place.
Defender Jamie Carragher’s calf injury which forced him to miss the match at The Hawthorns will be assessed late on to see whether the centre-back is ready to return.
Swansea manager Brendan Rodgers is boosted by the return of Kemy Agustien.
The Dutch midfielder has been out for six weeks with a hamstring problem, and he is likely to make his return on the bench with Mark Gower, Leon Britton and Joe Allen having performed so well in his absence.
But the trip to face the Reds comes too soon for Stephen Dobbie, who is likely to return following the international break after an ankle injury.
