Liverpool forwards Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino are set to return for the trip to Stoke after being rested for Saturday's 1-1 draw at home to Chelsea.

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Daniel Sturridge, their two replacements at the weekend, look most likely to miss out while Georginio Wijnaldum could come back into midfield at the expense of James Milner.

Emre Can has recovered from a muscular injury and will rejoin the squad but a late decision will be made on defender Dejan Lovren.

Provisional squad: Mignolet, Alexander-Arnold, Klavan, Matip, Moreno, Henderson, Wijnaldum, Coutinho, Salah, Firmino, Mane, Karius, Gomez, Robertson, Milner, Can, Oxlade-Chamberlain, Lallana, Sturridge.
