Liverpool striker Daniel Sturridge (hip) should make the starting line-up, despite picking up a knock in the 2-2 draw at Manchester City.

Winger Raheem Sterling (calf) should also make a return to the squad, but Martin Kelly (knee) is out until March.

Philippe Coutinho is still struggling to gain enough match fitness to make his Reds bow, but could feature on the bench

West Brom will be without defender Goran Popov after he was sent off against Tottenham for spitting at Kyle Walker, incurring a three-match ban.

They are also missing long-term absentees Zoltan Gera and George Thorne (both knee), but Youssouf Mulumbu (knee) could make a return after featuring for DR Congo in the Africa Cup of Nations.

Peter Odemwingie is highly unlikely to feature with his future at the club still uncertain.
