Two youngsters currently out on loan, Joao Carlos Teixeira and Jerome Sinclair, are included – they could get a first taste of a full Anfield.

Also included from the current squad are Alberto Moreno – who was left out of Spain’s Under 21s this week, Jon Flanagan – who has missed the season so far due to injury, Rickie Lambert – dropped for the England squad, Mario Balotelli – out of favour with Italy, and Glen Johnson.

The match will feature a host of former Liverpool players, ex-opponents and current first team and academy players.

Luis Suarez is listed among Gerrard’s squad, but Dirk Kuyt and Raul Meireles have been forced to withdraw due to injury.

With a total of 42 players named, hopefully the Main Stand expansion has seen the changing rooms expanded this week!
