Liverpool and Everton meet in the Merseyside derby on Sunday with both sides looking to earn bragging rights.
Liverpool will again be without striker Luis Suarez as he serves the second game of his ten-match suspension.
Daniel Sturridge, who scored twice in last weekend's demolition of Newcastle, will lead the line in Suarez's absence as he makes his Merseyside derby debut.
Fabio Borini made a successful return from injury when he came off the bench to score at Newcastle and he is likely to start on the bench again.
Martin Kelly and Joe Allen are out for the rest of the season, whilst Raheem Sterling also remains sidelined and is unlikely to be involved.
Jamie Carragher will play in his final Merseyside derby before he hangs up his boots at the end of the season.
Everton are waiting on the fitness of mdfielder Darron Gibson after he missed last weekend's win over Fulham with hip and thigh problems.
Tony Hibbert will keep his place in the squad after making his return to the fold on the bench last weekend following calf surgery.
Everton boss David Moyes has no other injury concerns to deal with, but he must decide who will lead his attack with Nikica Jelavic and Victor Anichebe both vying to start up front
