Liverpool striker Daniel Sturridge is pushing for his first Premier League start at home to Norwich City after two goals in as many games since his £12million transfer.
Defender Jose Enrique is still not fully fit after a hamstring problem so Glen Johnson will continue to deputise at left-back. Jordan Henderson could challenge for Joe Allen's place in midfield. Norwich midfielder Jonny Howson has recovered from the illness which kept him out of the Newcastle game last weekend.
Andrew Surman returns to the squad after recovering from a knee injury and Grant Holt (hamstring) has been declared fully fit. Defender Steven Whittaker (hip) and striker Steve Morison (knee) are still recovering but could return in 10 days.
