Pepe Reina returns for Liverpool as they host Wigan at Anfield looking to climb the Premier League table.
The Spain international has recovered from a hamstring injury after a five-week absence and is likely to replace Brad Jones, who has deputised in the last four league matches.
Midfielder Jonjo Shelvey is fit after a thigh problem forced him out of the England squad this week while centre-backs Daniel Agger (groin) and Martin Skrtel (illness) are expected to be included.
Wigan have winger Ryo Miyaichi back available for the Anfield encounter.
Miyaichi, on loan from Arsenal, has not been involved in the last five games due to a pubic injury but is now training with the group again.
James McArthur, who has been sidelined recently by a dead leg, is a doubt, while fellow midfielder Albert Crusat (knee) and defender Antolin Alcaraz (groin) are not yet ready to return.
