Wednesday 05 December 2012
Striker Luis Suarez is set to start his first Europa League match away from home for Liverpool in their final Group A fixture against Udinese.
The Uruguay international is suspended for Sunday's trip to West Ham, which means there is no need to rest him, so will lead the line as the team looks to secure qualification for the last 32 but captain Steven Gerrard has been left behind due to illness.
Other senior first-team players who have travelled include goalkeeper Jose Reina, defenders Glen Johnson and Martin Skrtel and forwards Raheem Sterling and Suso.
Provisional squad: Reina, Jones, Johnson, Enrique, Sahin, Suarez, Cole, Assaidi, Henderson, Coates, Downing, Carragher, Allen, Suso, Sterling, Shelvey, Coady, Skrtel, Wisdom.
