Midfielder Lucas Leiva returns to the squad for the visit of West Brom having missed last week’s draw at Newcastle after the birth of his second child.

Playmaker Philippe Coutinho has returned to training but manager Brendan Rodgers thinks it is more likely he will be in contention for Arsenal next weekend.

Left-back Jose Enrique is likely to sit out a second successive week as his knee problem continues to be managed.

Provisional squad: Mignolet, Johnson, Toure, Skrtel, Sakho, Cissokho, Gerrard, Lucas, Moses, Sturridge, Suarez, Jones, Agger, Kelly, Henderson, Allen, Alberto, Ibe, Sterling.
