Left-back Jose Enrique has been ruled out with a knee injury which requires surgery so Aly Cissokho looks set to keep his place for the 221st Merseyside derby.

Striker Daniel Sturridge has been affected by a dead leg but that did not prevent him playing 90 minutes for England against Germany in midweek.

Captain Steven Gerrard is also playing through a hip problem but that will not be enough keep him out.

Provisional squad: Mignolet, Johnson, Skrtel, Agger, Cissokho, Lucas, Gerrard, Henderson, Coutinho, Suarez, Sturridge, Jones, Toure, Sakho, Kelly, Alberto, Moses, Allen, Sterling.
