The Reds take on Manchester City at Wembley for the first silverware of the season on Sunday and Lovren is hoping to have shaken off the illness that saw him miss the Europa League win over Augsburg on Thursday.

Jurgen Klopp’s men appear to have come through that match unscathed so both Philippe Coutinho and Daniel Sturridge should be fit to take their starting places.

Centre-back Martin Skrtel and midfielder Joe Allen (both hamstring) are not yet ready to return while forward Adam Lallana is still making his way back from a calf problem, although he could just about be ready to return to the squad.
