Liverpool manager Kenny Dalglish is likely to start £35million striker Andy Carroll against Chelsea following his goal in the FA Cup final against the Blues on Saturday.
Carroll's introduction from the bench during the final gave Liverpool a fresh impetus and he came very close to scoring an equalizer but for a good save from Petr Cech.
The former Newcastle frontman is likely to replace Craig Bellamy in the starting XI while midfielder Jay Spearing may also miss out after his disappointing display at Wembley.
Chelsea are set to be without David Luiz and Gary Cahill again.
The centre-backs have been stepping up their recovery from hamstring injuries, with caretaker manager Roberto Di Matteo last week hopeful they could return to full training this week.
Di Matteo will also assess how his FA Cup final heroes have reacted to Saturday's Wembley exertions before deciding on his team against the same opponents.
