Lucas has missed the last 9 games but is back in full training.

The Brazil international returned to training this week after a groin problem sustained six weeks ago but may not be ready to go straight into the squad.

Provisional squad: Mignolet, Can, Skrtel, Sakho, Markovic, Henderson, Allen, Moreno, Coutinho, Lallana, Sterling, Jones, Toure, Lovren, Johnson, Enrique, Gerrard, Lucas, Balotelli, Lambert, Borini, Sturridge.
