Aurelio set for return

Liverpool expect to have Brazilian full-back Fabio Aurelio back in their squad for the first time this season against Burnley, after his recovery from knee surgery in the summer.

Aurelio has played in two practice matches in recent days and will at least be on the bench for tomorrow’s Barclays Premier League match at Anfield.

Benitez does not expect any injury problems from the international matches his players have been involved in this week.

Provisional squad: Reina, Johnson, Carragher, Skrtel, Kyrgiakos, Insua, Dossena, Aurelio, Mascherano, Voronin, Lucas, Kuyt, Riera, Benayoun, Babel, Gerrard, Torres, Cavalieri, Plessis, Ngog.
