Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp is set to make changes for Monday's FA Cup tie at fellow Premier League opponents Wolves.
Midfielders Naby Keita and Adam Lallana, unused substitutes in Thursday's defeat at Manchester City, could come in while Fabinho, who played just over 30 minutes at the Etihad, is likely to start.
The two sides met in the Premier League last month with Liverpool running out 2-0 winners at Molineux thanks to goals from Mohamed Salah and Virgil van Dijk.
Wolves manager Nuno Espirito Santo is ready for another tough encounter against the league leaders.
"We know it's a fantastic team and manager and they are in a good moment. It's going to be very tough, we must prepare well," he said.
"They are very organised, very intense, have individual quality, press well, and their counter attack is one of the best there is."
Diogo Jota has returned to training and could feature for Wolves against Liverpool.
The forward has missed the last four games and will be assessed over the weekend ahead of Monday's third-round game at Molineux.
Romain Saiss is available after limping off in the 2-0 defeat to Crystal Palace with a knee problem, while Morgan Gibbs-White is among those vying for a starting berth.
Xherdan Shaqiri and striker Daniel Sturridge could get a run out for Liverpool, as could Alberto Moreno.
Nathaniel Clyne is unavailable after joining Bournemouth on loan.
- This will be the seventh FA Cup meeting between Wolves and Liverpool - Wolves have won four of the previous six, including the last such meeting in January 2017 (2- 1 at Anfield).
- Liverpool have been eliminated from five of their last seven FA Cup ties against fellow Premier League opponents.
- Wolves are winless in their last six home FA Cup games (D2 L4), since beating Doncaster in a replay in round three in 2010/11.
- Liverpool haven't been knocked out at this stage of the FA Cup since the 2010-11 season, when they lost 0-1 against Man Utd.
