Wolves midfielder Karl Henry is serving a three-game ban for his straight red card against Aston Villa 10 days ago.
However, on-loan Arsenal midfielder Emmanuel Frimpong has been cleared by specialists to play after suffering an eye injury against Alex McLeish’s side.
Midfielder Jamie O’Hara (hernia) and defender Jody Craddock (hamstring) could soon be in contention as they are playing for the reserves against Fulham on Monday evening.
Liverpool manager Kenny Dalglish may have to freshen up his team after his side came through two big cup ties in the space of three days.
Having made four changes for Saturday’s win at home to Manchester United, having played Manchester City in midweek, the Scot may still feel the need to alter things.
Jay Spearing’s hamstring problem, which has sidelined him for four matches, remains Dalglish’s only injury doubt as striker Luis Suarez serves the last game of his eight-match suspension.
