Lukaku has been given the green light to play, despite reporting an issue with his thigh after Belgium’s World Cup qualifier last week.

Jagielka, who pulled out of England’s squad with a similar problem, and Baines, who missed the last two matches with a hamstring strain, are also ready for action.

Midfielder Darron Gibson is fit again following a groin injury but winger Aaron Lennon is a doubt with a minor knock, while a late decision will be taken on James McCarthy after he played almost two full matches for the Republic of Ireland having not featured since late August because of groin surgery.

Provisional squad: Stekelenburg, Coleman, Jagielka, Williams, Baines, Barry, Gueye, Cleverley, Barkley, Lukaku, Bolasie, Robles, Funes Mori, Holgate, Oviedo, Gibson, Deulofeu, Mirallas, Valencia.
