Andre Villas-Boas will be able to call on midfielder Sandro for tonight's clash with Liverpool after he shook off his injury problem.

The Brazilian was carried off on a stretcher with a stomach injury in the clash with West Ham on Sunday and looked set for a spell on the sidelines but the injury is not as bad as first feared and he will be able to play tonight.

Striker Emmanuel Adebayor remains suspended following his sending off against Arsenal so he can’t play but Moussa Dembele may start his first game in over a month after overcoming a hip problem.

Scott Parker (Achilles), Benoit Assou-Ekotto and Younes Kaboul (both knee) remain sidelined.
