Goalkeepers Jose Reina and Doni return from suspension for Liverpool.

Reina is set to reclaim his starting place after a three-match absence but Brad Jones, who deputised in last weekend’s FA Cup semi-final, will hope to remain in the squad.

Left-back Jose Enrique could return, having missed out at Wembley, while striker Andy Carroll will be looking to retain his place after scoring the winning goal in the last two matches.

West Brom striker Marc-Antoine Fortune is a fitness doubt.

Fortune suffered a hamstring injury during last week’s 1-0 home win over QPR and was substituted after an hour. If he is ruled out, Shane Long will be in contention to replace him.

Central defender Jonas Olsson is expected to return after pulling out of the Rangers clash during the warm-up with a tight groin. Craig Dawson is on stand-by if the Swede breaks down again.

Midfielders Zoltan Gera and James Morrison (both knee) and right-back Steven Reid (foot) remain on the injury list.

Liverpool (from): Reina, Johnson, Carragher, Skrtel, Agger, Enrique, Gerrard, Spearing, Downing, Rodriguez, Carroll, Suarez, Doni, Jones, Flanagan, Aurelio, Shelvey, Henderson, Kuyt, Bellamy, Sterling.

West Brom (from): Foster, Daniels, Fulop, Jones, Olsson, McAuley, Dawson, Ridgewell, Shorey, Mulumbu, Scharner, Brunt, Andrews, Thomas, Dorrans, Tchoyi, Cox, Fortune, Long, Odemwingie, Hurst, Roofe, Berahino
