Liverpool are able to call on defender Daniel Agger for tonight's crunch Champions League Group E clash in the Stade Gerland, the Dane having recovered sufficiently from a back problem to return for the Anfield club’s injury-hit side.
Fernando Torres is also in the starting line-up, while Alberto Aquilani is on the bench, Andriy Voronin partnering Torres up front.
Lyon, with a 100% record at the top of the group, make two changes from their side that won at Liverpool a fortnight ago. Michel Bastos and Bafetimbi Gomis came in for Ederson and Sidney Govou, who were both in the bench.
Lyon: Lloris, Reveillere, Cris, Toulalan, Cissokho, Pjanic, Makoun, Kallstrom, Gomis, Lopez, Michel Bastos.
Subs: Vercoutre, Ederson, Govou, Delgado, Tafer, Gassama, Gonalons.
Liverpool: Reina, Carragher, Agger, Kyrgiakos, Insua, Lucas, Mascherano, Kuyt, Voronin, Benayoun, Torres.
Subs: Cavalieri, Aquilani, Babel, Ngog, Spearing, Darby, Ayala.
Referee: Frank De Bleeckere (Belgium).
