Liverpool will be without defender Alvaro Arbeloa (abdominal injury) and striker Andriy Voronin (ankle) for the FA Cup fourth round home tie with Havant and Waterlooville.
Mindful of a trip to West Ham next Wednesday, Rafael Benitez could field several squad players but will want to make absolutely certain there is no chance of an embarrassment with this one.
But it is likely that players who did not start against Aston Villa on Monday will figure against Havant. And that could mean Steve Finnan, Charles Itandje, Lucas, Peter Crouch, Xabi Alonso and Ryan Babel being in the starting line-up.
Provisional squad: Reina, Itandje, Finnan, Carragher, Hyypia, Skrtel, Riise, Aurelio, Pennant, Gerrard, Mascherano, Babel, Alonso, Benayoun, Kewell, Crouch, Torres, Kuyt, Lucas.
