Preview: Liverpool manager Kenny Dalglish will give Luis Suarez a late fitness test ahead of Saturday's Premier League clash with West Brom at the Hawthorns.

Suarez scored both goals in the Reds' 2-1 Carling Cup victory at Stoke Wednesday night but picked up an ankle knock towards the end and his condition will be evaluated ahead of the game.

The Uruguayan has been in irresistible form this season, with four goals in nine games and Dalglish will leave it as late as possible before deciding if he is fit enough to start.

Both sides would probably prefer to look to the future but there will be an inevitable focus on Roy Hodgson's ill-fated spell as Liverpool manager when the two sides meet.

Nine months have passed since the 64-year-old was sacked at Anfield following an ineffectual six months in charge. While Hodgson harbours no animosity towards Dalglish he will hope for a repeat of the result the last time these two sides met in April, when two Chris Brunt penalties gave the Baggies a 2-1 win over the Reds.

Team News: West Brom are without striker Shane Long, after the Republic of Ireland international was side-lined for six weeks after suffering a knee injury against Aston Villa.

Hodgson will choose one of Somen Tchoyi and Simon Cox to partner Peter Odemwingie up front while midfielders Paul Scharner and Graham Dorrans (both knee) and winger Jerome Thomas (foot) are all available again.

Liverpool welcome back midfielder Lucas Leiva who missed the draw with Norwich through suspension, while Daniel Agger is set to start in central defence after recovering from a rib injury.

West Brom possible XI: Foster; Reid, Olsson, McAuley, Jones; Brunt, Mulumbu, Scharner, Thomas; Cox, Odemwingie.

Liverpool probable XI: Reina; Johnson, Agger, Carragher, Enrique; Lucas, Adam, Downing, Gerrard; Suarez, Carroll.
