For Liverpool, Defender Nathaniel Clyne will likely make the Liverpool bench for the Champions League semi-final first leg at home to Roma.

Manager Jurgen Klopp will recall all his big names after making five changes at the weekend, meaning a return for the likes of Dejan Lovren, Andrew Robertson, Roberto Firmino and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain.

After serving his one-match suspension, captain Jordan Henderson is expected to return to Liverpool’s midfield.

For Roma, Aleksandar Kolarov, Alessandro Florenzi, Daniele De Rossi and Edin Dzeko are all expected to start at Anfield after Roma manager Eusebio Di Francesco rested the quartet at the weekend.

Rick Karsdorp and Gregoire Defrel, who both have knee injuries, will miss Tuesday’s semi-final.
