Jose Enrique will be available for Liverpool's home game against Fulham on Saturday.
The Spaniard has beaten a hamstring problem which kept him out of last week's home defeat by Aston Villa.
And Brendan Rodgers has welcomed the imminent return of Enrique, who has been used at left-back and in midfield this season.
He told the club website: "Jose Enrique is back in, which is great news, because he was absolutely flying when he picked up his niggle at West Ham."
Rodgers expects his side to recover quickly from the shock loss to Villa - a third at Anfield in the league this term.
He said: "The reaction of the players has been first class - their willingness to put it right and get three points this weekend is very high. I've seen that in training."
