Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers has been tipped to rest a number of his senior players for the Europa League visit of Anzhi Makhachkala on Thursday evening with the upcoming Merseyside derby in mind.
However, Luis Suarez is thought to have had his named penned into the starting lineup because of Liverpool's lack of striking options.
The hosting Reds head into the match having only won six matches at Anfield in 2012. None of those successes have come in European competitions.
Possible starting lineups:
Liverpool: Jones; Wisdom, Carragher, Coates, Enrique; Henderson, Sahin, Shelvey, Downing, Assaidi; Suarez
Anzhi: Gabulov; Agalarov, Samba, Tagirbekov, Zhirkov; Jucilei, Shatov, Carcela-Gonzales; Bousouffa, Traore, Eto'o
Sports Mole says: 1-1
