Defender Daniel Agger could return to the Liverpool squad for this weekend’s tie against Southampton having been out with a side strain.
But Brendan Rodgers will be missing Philippe Coutinho, who has undergone shoulder surgery, with Iago Aspas and Raheem Sterling will be pushing for a recall.
Speaking ahead of this weekend’s match, Rodgers isn’t yet thinking about whether his side can win the title.
“I’ve not considered it,” said the Liverpool manager. “My only focus is on the next game.
“Our expectancy is to improve as a team. The demand for us is to get ourselves fully right and prepared for the game at the weekend.”
Provisional squad: Mignolet, Wisdom, Toure, Agger, Enrique, Lucas, Gerrard, Henderson, Moses, Aspas, Sterling, Sturridge, Jones, Skrtel, Kelly, Alberto, Allen, Ibe.
