Liverpool forward Mohamed Salah is back in the squad for the Champions League match in Genk after missing Sunday’s draw against Manchester United as he had not recovered from an ankle injury.

Defenders Trent Alexander-Arnold (illness) and Joel Matip (knee) have not made the trip to Belgium, which means it is likely Dejan Lovren and Joe Gomez will start.

James Milner is set to return in midfield, where manager Jurgen Klopp could look to bring in fresh legs from the likes of Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Naby Keita and Adam Lallana.

Provisional squad: Alisson, Gomez, Lovren, Van Dijk, Robertson, Keita, Milner, Oxlade-Chamberlain, Salah, Firmino, Mane, Adrian, Henderson, Fabinho, Lallana, Wijnaldum, Keita, Origi, Brewster.
