Liverpool defender Dejan Lovren is likely to return to the side for the must-win Champions League tie at home to Napoli.

The centre-back has missed the last three matches with concussion but has returned to training so could replace Joel Matip.

Captain Jordan Henderson could also return to midfield after being a substitute against Bournemouth at the weekend.

Liverpool must beat Napoli 1-0 or by two clear goals to advance to the Champions League knockout stage.

Provisional squad: Alisson, Alexander-Arnold, Lovren, Van Dijk, Robertson, Henderson, Milner, Keita, Salah, Firmino, Mane, Mignolet, Matip, Fabinho, Wijnaldum, Lallana, Shaqiri, Sturridge, Origi.
