Aston Villa caretaker Gary McAllister has no fresh injury worries ahead of the game.
Villa have a clean bill of health as they look to finish the season as the Midlands’ leading club. They are currently one point adrift of West Brom, who visit Newcastle.
Record signing Darren Bent will be looking to take his Villa goal tally into double figures after netting nine in 15 games since his switch from Sunderland in January which could ultimately cost the club £24million.
Liverpool are set to be boosted by the return of Raul Meireles, who missed last weekend’s defeat to Tottenham with a minor injury but has returned to full fitness.
Meireles’ return could mean Andy Carroll, who has missed two of the last four matches because of a knee injury, dropping to the bench.
