Alonso, 26, could face Manchester United at Anfield on Sunday following a frustrating start to the season.
The Spain midfielder has featured in only six Barclays Premier League games and been out of action since the Arsenal match in October.
Steve Finnan is doubtful because of a calf problem while Daniel Agger remains sidelined with a foot injury.
Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson is reporting a clean bill of health ahead of the clash.
Owen Hargreaves has now recovered from the calf injury he sustained in the warm-up prior to Saturday's win over Derby.
The only minor doubt from Wednesday's draw in Rome is John O'Shea but Ferguson is confident last season's Anfield matchwinner will recover from an abductor strain.
