New recruit Kostas Mitroglou misses out on making his Fulham debut against Liverpool on Wednesday night due to injury.

The Greek striker is struggling with a knee problem while defender Fernando Amorebieta remains sidelined for Fulham's Barclays Premier League home meeting with the Reds.

Fulham boss Rene Meulensteen is expected to make few changes from the squad that pulled off an impressive 2-2 draw against Manchester United at Old Trafford on Sunday.

Liverpool defenders Daniel Agger and Glen Johnson both returned to training this week but Wednesday's game may come too soon.

Agger (calf) has missed the last six matches while Johnson has been out since mid-January with ankle and groin problems.

Portugal Under-21 midfielder Joao Carlos Teixeira could be included in the travelling party to freshen up the squad after training with the first team recently.

Fulham squad: Stekelenburg, Riether, Burn, Heitinga, Riise, Tunnicliffe, Sidwell, Jorgensen, Richardson, Holtby, Bent, Hangeland, Kaciniklic, Stockdale, Duff, Parker, Tankovic, Cole.

Liverpool squad: Mignolet, Flanagan, Skrtel, Toure, Cissokho, Gerrard, Henderson, Sterling, Coutinho, Sturridge, Suarez, Jones, Kelly, Allen, Alberto, Aspas, Moses, Ibe, Teixeira.
