Liverpool pair Jose Reina and Glen Johnson a doubt for visit of Newcastle


Goalkeeper Jose Reina and defender Glen Johnson remain injury doubts for the visit of Newcastle.

Reina has missed four matches with a hamstring injury while Johnson missed last week's Merseyside derby with a similar niggle and will be assessed before Sunday.

Manager Brendan Rodgers is set to restore his first-choice line-up after making nine changes for the midweek Capital One Cup defeat by Swansea.

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