The French winger was omitted for last week's 4-0 thrashing by Blackpool by manager Roberto Martinez, who questioned the player's attitude amid speculation over his future.
Unavailable: Roberto Martinez will have to do without the injured Victor Moses
Martinez has since played down reports of a rift between the pair and said the 24-year-old will be in contention this weekend.
Martinez must also decide whether to keep faith with goalkeeper Chris Kirkland after his personal horror show in the season opener against Blackpool.
Forward Victor Moses has been ruled out with a calf injury while club captain Gary Caldwell remains on the sidelines after double hip surgery in the summer.
Provisional squad: Kirkland, Gohouri, Boyce, Stam, Figueroa, Alcaraz, Watson, Diame, Thomas, McArthur, McCarthy, Rodallega, Boselli, Scotland, Gomez, Golobart, N'Zogbia, Al Habsi.
