Liverpool striker Luis Suarez is suspended for Sunday’s trip to West Ham after accumulating five bookings.

Manager Brendan Rodgers has played midfielder Jonjo Shelvey in a ‘false nine’ position before and could do so again as a stop-gap with no other senior strikers fit.

Captain Steven Gerrard, left out of the Europa League squad which beat Udinese in Italy because of illness, will be restored at Upton Park as will the rested Daniel Agger and Lucas Leiva.

Provisional squad: Reina, Johnson, Skrtel, Agger, Enrique, Lucas, Gerrard, Allen, Sterling, Shelvey, Downing, Jones, Wisdom, Carragher, Coates, Sahin, Henderson, Suso, Cole, Assaidi, Morgan.
