Fellow midfielder Jonjo Shelvey though has been ruled out. He travelled to London for the match with Chelsea but wasn’t part of the matchday squad after picking up a slight thigh injury. It is hoped he will be okay for Wigan’s visit to Anfield on Saturday.

Meanwhile, reports on Monday in Denmark suggest defender Daniel Agger has pulled out of their squad with a groin injury and faces a fortnight on the sidelines.

Fellow centre back Martin Skrtel missed the Chelsea match with illness and should be fit for the weekend.
