• Defender and goalkeeper will likely to play in Carabao Cup tie
• Jürgen Klopp expected to rest Virgil van Dijk
Dejan Lovren could make his first appearance since the World Cup final when Liverpool host Chelsea in the Carabao Cup on Wednesday.
The Croatia international has yet to feature for the Premier League leaders this season having returned from the World Cup with a stomach injury but may be included in Jürgen Klopp’s squad for the third round tie at Anfield having resumed full training. “Dejan looks actually quite good,” the Liverpool manager said on Tuesday. “He has trained completely normal now four times. He looks ready.”
