Rene Meulensteen could keep faith in the side that drew at Old Trafford last weekend. New boy Kostas Mitroglou is again ruled out as he continues to build up his fitness, while Fernando Amorebieta and Matthew Briggs are also out of contention through injury.
Brendan Rodgers named an unchanged line-up for the weekend demolition of Arsenal and, given the success of his current set-up, there’d be no eyebrows raised if he keeps faith in the same XI. The likes of Jose Enrique, Lucas and Mamadou Sakho remain out through injury but, although Daniel Agger and Glen Johnson have both returned to full training, Rodgers is still uncertain whether the midweek match will come too soon for the pair.
