The former Chelsea striker injured his thigh on international duty and is expected to be out for three weeks. His replacement is likely to be Mario Balotelli with the fit again Adam Lallana and Philippe Coutinho also vying for starts.

While Lallana gets set to finally make his debut, his return is the only good news for Liverpool with Sturridge set to be joined on the treatment table by Emre Can and Joe Allen.

The pair were injured on international duty and join Martin Skrtel, Glen Johnson and Jon Flanagan in missing out.

Aston Villa meanwhile could give on-loan Manchester United midfielder Tom Cleverley his debut. The England man moves to the midlands on a season loan long deal on deadline day and is poised for a first start however Strikers Christian Benteke (Achilles) and Libor Kozak (broken leg) miss out.

Paul Lambert’s side have made an impressive start to the season, winning two and drawing one of their opening three games to sit third in the table.

The Midlanders have a good recent record at Anfield, drawing 2-2 there last season and winning 3-1 the season before. Their good start has eased the pressure on Lambert after the former Norwich manager came under fire last season.

The turn around in fortune has pleased many, amongst them Reds boss Brendan Rodgers.

“They’ve started well. I’m pleased for Paul because he’s gone in and looked to bring in young players. He said.

“The first season was difficult but now they’ve done well. It’s been a tough game for us in the last couple of years.”
