Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers plans to make some changes for the Europa League visit of Young Boys tomorrow but with qualification a possibility he will try to retain some strength.

The side will not be a second string like the team which lost to Anzhi in Moscow a fortnight ago, which means the likes of Steven Gerrard and Luis Suarez could feature for some part.

Midfielder Lucas Leiva is still not fully fit from a thigh injury which has sidelined him since August and will play for the under-21s on Friday as part of his comeback.

Provisional squad: Reina, Wisdom, Carragher, Skrtel, Enrique, Allen, Gerrard, Shelvey, Sahin, Henderson, Sterling, Suso, Suarez, Jones, Coates, Downing, Cole, Assaidi, Pacheco, Yesil
