Liverpool will be looking to capitalise on a 1-0 lead going into to second leg of the Europa League playoff against Trabzonspor.
Key Liverpool players Fernando Torres and Steven Gerrard are to miss the fixture as Hodgson is unwilling to let Torres play a third consecutive game whilst he is still building his way to full match fitness.
Gerrard will be sidelined due to a back problem which has been bothering the England captain on and off for a while. Other team news sees defender Daniel Agger unlikely to feature after he suffered from concussion early this month and Maxi Rodriguez is also struggling with gastroenteritis.
With an injury hit team the Reds are likely to find it difficult to protect their slender lead and continue through to the group stages of the cup.
