Jones was suspended for three matches by his manager, Joe Kinnear, after he admitted biting the nose of a journalist and he now finds his hold on a first-team place has become as fragile as his reputation.
Kinnear, satisfied with his team's 2-1 win against their possible quarter- final opponents, Tottenham Hotspur, said: "He's paid his debt and it's up to him to force his way back in."
Jones retorted: "I've recovered from the problems I've had and said my regrets. Now I just want to get back to playing and enjoying football."
Liverpool are likely to include Neil Ruddock, who missed Saturday's 2- 1 win over Sheffield Wednesday with a suspension. Their goalkeeper, David James, will also play after recovering from knee and thigh injuries.Reuse content
