Baines, who had a nightmare campaign last tseason due to a succession of injury problems, missed the defeat to Bournemouth at the weekend because of a hamstring injury.

Bryan Oviedo stepped in last weekend and looks likely to deputise for the 31-year-old again on Friday night if Baines fails to recover.

After this weekend he will get a two-week period off due to the international break before Ronald Koeman’s men head to Manchester City.
