New signings included in Liverpool squad

New Liverpool signings Paul Konchesky and Raul Meireles are set to make their first appearances in the squad for Sunday’s Premier League clash at Birmingham.

Left-back Konchesky is likely to start, having had over a week to settle in after completing his transfer deadline day move from Fulham but Meireles may have to settle for a place on the bench having been away with Portugal.

Forward Dirk Kuyt is out with a shoulder injury sustained while away with Holland while Joe Cole serves the final game of his three-match suspension.

Striker David Ngog has recovered from hamstring injury but defender Fabio Aurelio still has a niggling Achilles tendon problem.

Provisional squad: Reina, Johnson, Carragher, Skrtel, Agger, Konchesky, Lucas, Poulsen, Rodriguez, Gerrard, Jovanovic, Torres, Jones, Meireles, Pacheco, Babel, Ngog, Krygiakos.
