Craig Bellamy could return to the Liverpool squad but Glen Johnson is still not fit having sat out the last three games, while centre-back Daniel Agger is sidelined with a cracked rib.

Kenny Dalglish has made changes to specifically combat the Potters’ strengths in past encounters but January’s goalless draw at Anfield may force a rethink.

Stoke will be without suspended striker Ricardo Fuller.

The Jamaican serves the first of a three-match ban following his sending-off against Chelsea last weekend for a stamp on Branislav Ivanovic.

Potters boss Tony Pulis has already confirmed Thomas Sorensen will get his chance in goal after losing the number one spot to Asmir Begovic last month while Peter Crouch, rested at Stamford Bridge, will also come in.

Liverpool (from): Reina, Kelly, Carragher, Skrtel, Enrique, Spearing, Gerrard, Henderson, Downing, Carroll, Suarez, Doni, Flanagan, Coates, Adam, Shelvey, Rodriguez, Kuyt, Bellamy.

Stoke (from): Begovic, Sorensen, Huth, Upson, Collins, Shotton, Shawcross, Wilkinson, Wilson, Woodgate, Whelan, Whitehead, Etherington, Diao, Pennant, Delap, Palacios, Jones, Jerome, Crouch, Walters.
