Daniel Sturridge could boost Liverpool's thin striking options after revealing on Saturday he is close to a return.
Sturridge is one of a number of Liverpool players on the sidelines with hamstring trouble, and he has missed their last four games after making a brief return to action at the end of November.
The 26-year-old has only appeared in six games this season, scoring four goals, and the Boxing Day win over Leicester saw Liverpool's striking options further reduced.
The injury leaves Benteke as the only senior striker available to boss Jurgen Klopp, but Sturridge revealed soon after the win that might not be the case for long.
He said on Twitter: "Perfect gift for Christmas from the boys getting a win. On a sidenote I'm back training and good to go!!"
Liverpool are next in action at Sunderland on Wednesday night, a match you can watch live on Sky Sports 1 HD - coverage from the Stadium of Light starts at 7.00pm.
