Liverpool v Stoke preview

Owen: Available to Pulis

Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers is set to recall several players to the first XI.

The Anfield manager shuffled his pack considerably for Thursday night's 3-2 Europa League defeat to Udinese and will make changes again, with midfielder Jonjo Shelvey certain to drop out of the team as he continues to serve a domestic suspension.

Jose Enrique and Joe Cole have been working their way back from knee and hamstring problems respectively, but it remains to be seen whether or not either is ready to make a first-team return, while Martin Kelly (knee) and Lucas Leiva (thigh) remain sidelined.

Stoke manager Tony Pulis has a fully-fit squad to pick from.

Peter Crouch, Michael Owen and Charlie Adam could all feature against their former club as both sides look to build a winning run after they both picked up their first league wins last weekend.

The only Potters player who is not in contention is defender Andy Wilkinson, who serves the final match of a three-game suspension.

Liverpool (from): Reina, Jones, Johnson, Agger, Coates, Wilson, Carragher, Skrtel, Wisdom, Robinson, Sahin, Gerrard, Henderson, Downing, Allen, Sterling, Suarez, Assaidi, Pacheco, Borini, Suso, Yesil, Morgan.

Stoke (from): Begovic, Sorensen, Huth, Shawcross, Cameron, Upson, Shotton, Wilson, Whelan, Etherington, Pennant, Delap, Palacios, Jones, Jerome, Crouch, Walters, Kightly, Whitehead, Adam, Edu, Nzonzi, Owen, Ness.
