Stoke manager Tony Pulis has concerns over a number of players ahead of tomorrow’s Barclays Premier League clash with Liverpool at Anfield.

Defenders Jonathan Woodgate, Marc Wilson and Ryan Shotton are all nursing what Pulis describes as “niggles” and will be assessed.

Andy Wilkinson could return at the back having overcome his recent knee injury, while the likes of goalkeeper Thomas Sorensen, winger Matthew Etherington and striker Peter Crouch are set to be restored to the team after they were rested for last weekend’s FA Cup victory at Gillingham.

Provisional squad: Sorensen, Wilkinson, Huth, Shawcross, Wilson, Pennant, Delap, Palacios, Etherington, Crouch, Walters, Begovic, Shotton, Upson, Diao, Jones, Whitehead, Whelan, Woodgate, Fuller, Higginbotham, Jerome.
