Liverpool striker Daniel Sturridge is expected to have recovered from a hip injury to face Arsenal on Saturday.

The 25-year-old, along with midfielder Adam Lallana (groin), withdrew from the England squad last week but both are likely to be in contention to face the Gunners.

Centre-back Martin Skrtel and captain Steven Gerrard begin three-match suspensions with Dejan Lovren favourite to replace the former in defence.

Provisional squad: Mignolet, Can, Lovren, Sakho, Sterling, Henderson, Lucas, Moreno, Sterling, Coutinho, Sturridge, Jones, Johnson, Toure, Allen, Markovic, Balotelli, Borini, Lambert.
