Manchester City midfielder Patrick Vieira will miss the Barclays Premier League match against Liverpool on Sunday as he starts a three-match suspension.
Vieira has been punished by the FA following a challenge on Stoke's Glenn Whelan during the draw in midweek.
Martin Petrov is out with a knee injury with fears he could be sidelined for up to four weeks, while Carlos Tevez is still in Argentina dealing with a domestic matter. However, Craig Bellamy could come into contention after stepping up his fitness following a knee problem.
Team (from): Given, Taylor, Richards, Zabaleta, Onuoha, Toure, Lescott, Boyata, Garrido, Sylvinho, Bridge, Wright-Phillips, Ireland, Barry, De Jong, Ibrahim, Johnson, Bellamy, Adebayor.
