Chelsea forward Romelu Lukaku, who moved to the Hawthorns on a temporary basis, could get his wish for first-team football by starting up front against the Reds, while new boy Markus Rosenberg could be left to watch from the sidelines.
Meanwhile, Rodgers is expected to throw new signings Fabio Borini and Joe Allen into the fray, with Luis Suarez, who recently signed a fresh long-term deal at the club, completing the 4-3-3 set-up with Stewart Downing.
Lucas Leiva, who missed the majority of last season with a cruciate ligament problem, should slot back into his holding midfield role, while Daniel Agger is expected to start in defence despite ongoing questions surrounding his future at Anfield.
