Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers will bring back all his big names for Sunday's visit of Manchester United.
Steven Gerrard, Luis Suárez, Glen Johnson, Martin Skrtel, Daniel Agger, Joe Allen and Martin Kelly were all rested for Thursday night's 5-3 Europa League win at Young Boys but will return as the Reds go looking for their first Premier League victory of the season.
Forwards Fabio Borini and Raheem Sterling, substitutes in Switzerland, are likely to start while midfielder Jonjo Shelvey pressed his claims for inclusion with a two-goal second-half cameo.
Manchester United winger Ashley Young misses the match after being ruled out for a further two to three weeks with knee cartilage trouble.
Wayne Rooney will also be absent due to a gashed thigh despite reports he was due to make an earlier-than-expected comeback.
Darren Fletcher, who came on as a substitute in the Champions League win over Galatasaray in midweek having recovered from a chronic bowel condition, is not being considered for a return to the starting line-up with Sir Alex Ferguson instead pin-pointing next Wednesday's Capital One Cup clash with Newcastle.
Nobody wants to see the ferocity of this fixture compromised, but the boundaries of ill taste are being judged when the supporters come face to face.
Liverpool’s first home game since the recent Hillsborough report ensures an afternoon of raw emotion.
There could be no more appropriate time for Brendan Rodgers to secure his first win, but United have enjoyed more success at Anfield than any other team in the Premier League.
The annual record-breaking global audience won’t miss a kick.
Betting: Home 15-8, Away 11-8, Draw 11-5.
Stat of the game: United have failed to win in their last four Premier League visits to Anfield, losing three and drawing one.
Chris Bascombe’s prediction: Liverpool 1 Manchester United 1.
