Liverpool manager Roy Hodgson plans to make changes for the opening Europa League group match at home to Steaua Bucharest on Thursday.
The Reds boss will have one eye on Sunday's Premier League trip to face Manchester United at Old Trafford and, as a result, may opt to rest captain Steven Gerrard and striker Fernando Torres.
Should that happen their likely replacements are new signing Raul Meireles and David Ngog.
Midfielder Joe Cole, who has been serving a three-match domestic suspension, returns to the squad but Dirk Kuyt (shoulder) and Fabio Aurelio (Achilles) are definitely out.
Reina, Johnson, Carragher, Agger, Skrtel, Konchesky, Meireles, Lucas, Poulsen, Gerrard, Rodriguez, Cole, Jovanovic, Torres, Ngog, Babel, Jones, Spearing, Kelly, Kyrgiakos, Pacheco, Spearing.
