Daniel Sturridge, Philippe Coutinho and Divock Origi set for West Ham trip

Liverpool strikers Daniel Sturridge and Divock Origi and playmaker Philippe Coutinho are all set to be included in the squad for the FA Cup fourth-round replay at West Ham.

All three returned to training last week and Sturridge was an unused substitute at the weekend.

Midfielders Joe Allen (hamstring) and Cameron Brannagan (illness) will not play while centre-back Dejan Lovren is likely to be rested as a precaution after being taken off with cramp at the weekend.

West Ham will be without James Tomkins when they host Liverpool on Tuesday night.

Tomkins suffered a calf injury at Southampton on Saturday, and with Sam Byram cup-tied and Carl Jenkinson back at parent club Arsenal due to knee ligament damage, Joey O’Brien will step in at right-back.

Cheikhou Kouyate is available after missing the defeat at St Mary’s with an eye infection, but Manuel Lanzini and Diafra Sakho (both thigh) are still absent.

Provisional Liverpool squad: Mignolet, Flanagan, Toure, Caulker, Smith, Lucas, Stewart, Can, Ibe, Teixeira, Benteke, Ward, Clyne, Ilori, Sakho, Milner, Lallana, Ojo, Coutinho, Sturridge, Origi, Sinclair.

Provisional West Ham squad: Adrian, Randolph, Collins, Reid, Ogbonna, Cresswell, O’Brien, Oxford, Noble, Kouyate, Song, Obiang, Moses, Payet, Cullen, Valencia, Antonio, Carroll, Jelavic, Emenike.
