Midfielder Jordan Henderson was also left at home with an ankle problem and that will need to be assessed at the weekend.

Defender Mamadou Sakho has resumed training this week after a hip injury while full-back Glen Johnson could be back after illness meant he missed the trip to Istanbul.

Provisional squad: Mignolet, Can, Skrtel, Sakho, Ibe, Henderson, Allen, Markovic, Sterling, Coutinho, Sturridge, Ward, Lovren, Johnson, Toure, Moreno, Lallana, Lambert, Borini, Balotelli.
