Ward replaces Adam Bogdan, who is removed from the squad, while Caulker and Teixeria replace long-term injury duo Joe Gomez and Danny Ings.

There’s still no place for Jose Enrique in the squad, and somewhat surprisingly no Jon Flanagan either.

Liverpool return to Europa League action later this month against German side FC Ausburg. The first leg of their round of 32 tie takes place away on Thursday, 18th February, with the return leg back at Anfield a week later (25th February).

Liverpool Europa League Squad: * Simon Mignolet, Danny Ward, Nathaniel Clyne, Steven Caulker, Kolo Toure, Dejan Lovren, Alberto Moreno, Mamadou Sakho, Martin Skrtel, Lucas Leiva, Jordan Henderson, James Milner, Emre Can, Joe Allen, Philippe Coutinho, Adam Lallana, Roberto Firmino, Divock Origi, Joao Teixeira, Daniel Sturridge, Christian Benteke

In: Steven Caulker, João Carlos Teixeira, Danny Ward

Out: Ádám Bogdán, Joe Gomez, Danny Ings

* Note: The likes of Jordon Ibe, Brad Smith, Cameron Brannagan, Pedro Chirivella and Jordan Rossiter are not listed but are available as they are born after 1 January 1994.

** Kevin Stewart, like Flanagan, is over 21 years old and therefore not eligible.
