Damien Duff looks doubtful for Fulham's home encounter with Liverpool. The Ireland international was forced off in the first half of the Europa League 1-0 defeat at FC Twente after the recurrence of a calf injury. Mousa Dembele also limped off but could feature at Craven Cottage while Clint Dempsey should return from a thigh complaint. Bryan Ruiz comes back into contention after being cup-tied against former club Twente.
Lucas Leiva has been ruled out for the rest of the season with a knee injury so Liverpool manager Kenny Dalglish has to find a replacement in central midfield for Monday's trip to Fulham. Summer signing Jordan Henderson and Jay Spearing, who has been a back-up all season, look the most likely contenders. Captain Steven Gerrard is still sidelined with an ankle infection.
