Liverpool defender Dejan Lovren is expected to return to the starting line-up to face Chelsea at Stamford Bridge after an eye injury.

The Croatia centre-back missed Saturday's 4-1 win over Leicester after sustaining a badly-bruised eye in training and midfielder Lucas Leiva had to deputise.

Midfielder Emre Can is back in training after an ankle problem but is not yet match fit, while manager Jurgen Klopp has to decide whether to bring back Philippe Coutinho after he was rested following a long trip back from international duty with Brazil.

Provisional squad: Mignolet, Clyne, Lovren, Matip, Milner, Lallana, Henderson, Wijnaldum, Mane, Firmino, Coutinho, Karius, Klavan, Moreno, Lucas, Stewart, Grujic, Origi, Sturridge, Ings.
