Brendan Rodgers will welcome Daniel Sturridge and Philippe Coutinho back into his plans as Liverpool prepare to tackle Swansea at Anfield.
The January signings were not eligible for the Europa League clash with Zenit St Petersburg and were the only key men not to make the long trip to Russia.
Martin Skrtel started in place of Daniel Agger in the centre of defence against his former club on Thursday evening, while Joe Allen and Raheem Sterling came in for Lucas Leiva and Jonjo Shelvey.
Defender Chico Flores will miss Swansea's trip to Merseyside after rupturing ankle ligaments against QPR.
Kyle Bartley or club captain Garry Monk will get the chance to step into the Spaniard's shoes and stake a claim for a place ahead of the Capital One Cup final.
Midfielder Leon Britton could return from an ankle injury, while left-back Neil Taylor continues his recovery from a broken leg.
