Liverpool have decided against risking Fernando Torres in their Barclays Premier League trip to Blackburn tomorrow.
The Spanish striker has been involved in three first-team training sessions this week, but there are still concerns over his groin problem. Boss Rafael Benitez is now thinking of playing his top scorer against Fiorentina in the Champions League on Wednesday.
Italian Alberto Aquilani will also again be amongst the substitutes, while Ryan Babel is still out with an ankle injury.
Liverpool provisional squad: Reina, Johnson, Carragher, Agger, Insua, Benayoun, Gerrard, Mascherano, Lucas, Kuyt, Ngog, Aquilani, Skrtel, Riera, El Zhar, Aurelio, Kyrgiakos, Cavalieri, Dossena.
