Luis Suarez will once again be the centre of attention for this game. The Uruguay international has apologised to his refusal to shake the hand of Patrice Evra at Old Trafford last week, but many people, Liverpool fans included, have said it is too little too late, so it will be interesting to see how they respond to him, if he is included, that is.
Long-term absentee Lucas is Liverpool's only injury worry, so Dalglish is likely to rest some of his key players, with the upcoming Carling Cup final in mind.
Carragher and Rodriguez could well feature, though Dalglish will be sure to field a strong enough team that he feels will still win the tie.
Brighton are set to sign Manchester City youngster Abdul Rasiak on loan until the the end of the season. It is yet to be seen, though, whether the deal will be done in time for him to be available for this game.
Gary Dicker (fibia) and Tommy Elphick (achilles) are both definitely out.
Matt Sparrow returns from suspension and should play.
Liverpool and Brighton meet in a repeat of their meeting in the Carling Cup earlier in the season. That game, at Brighton, saw Liverpool run out 2-1 victors and they ended up progressing to the final of the competition. Having knocked out Manchester United in the last round, and with City also out of the competition, sides like Liverpool should fancy their chances in this competition as well.
Brighton have been going well in the Championship after a major blip in their form in the middle part of the season. They are unbeaten in their last 10 game in all competitions, including a victory over Newcastle to reach this stage of the FA Cup.
This could be the perfect opportunity for Luis Suarez to ensure he has won the home crowd back over after the whole Evra saga. If he does not start he will be sure to come off the bench and he is exactly the kind of player that Liverpool possess with the capability of being the difference between the two sides, though Brighton should push them close.
