Reds boss Brendan Rodgers said the teenage winger had looked “sensational” in training since returning to full fitness following a knee injury and he will provide another attacking option with Adam Lallana (groin) and Mario Balotelli (illness) still likely to be missing.

Emre Can returns from suspension but Martin Skrtel and Steven Gerrard must serve the final match of their three-game bans and Mamadou Sakho will miss out after picking up a hamstring injury in midweek against Blackburn.

Liverpool v Newcastle is 8pm kick off on Monday night.

Provisional squad: Mignolet, Johnson, Can, Lovren, Moreno, Henderson, Lucas, Allen, Sterling, Coutinho, Sturridge, Jones, Toure, Enrique, Manquillo, Markovic, Brannagan, Lambert, Borini, Ibe.
