Bolton striker Ivan Klasnic comes into consideration for the Trotters.
Boss Owen Coyle has confirmed Klasnic, suspended for the 1-1 draw at Wigan last weekend, is available despite currently being on bail following his arrest on suspicion of rape earlier this week.
Coyle has also confirmed defender Andy O’Brien is to join Championship side Leeds on a month-long loan as he completes his return to fitness after a recent hamstring injury.
With Joey O’Brien, Ricardo Gardner, Jlloyd Samuel and Sean Davis all still sidelined with long-tern injuries, Coyle has a settled squad to choose from.
Liverpool will give full-back Glen Johnson a late fitness test.
The England international has missed the last three games with a thigh injury but has an outside chance of featuring at the Reebok Stadium.
Dirk Kuyt is still sidelined with a knee problem but is making good progress and could be in contention to face Chelsea next week, although Daniel Agger is still missing with the calf injury which has kept him out for the past month.
Kick-off at the Reebok Stadium is 4pm.
