Skrtel a doubt for Reds

Liverpool defender Martin Skrtel is doubtful for the second leg of the Reds’ Europa League last-32 clash with Zenit St Petersburg with a knee problem suffered in training.

Striker Fabio Borini is out of contention after sustaining a shoulder injury in Sunday’s defeat of Swansea that will probably keep him out for at least eight weeks.

Fellow forward Daniel Sturridge and playmaker Philippe Coutinho are ineligible to play in the competition.

Provisional squad: Reina, Gulacsi, Jones, Johnson, Carragher, Skrtel, Agger, Enrique, Wisdom, Coates, Downing, Gerrard, Lucas, Allen, Henderson, Sterling, Shelvey, Suso, Assaidi, Suarez.
