Brendan Rodgers will welcome back Mario Balotelli, Glen Johnson and Joe Allen into the squad to face Bolton at Anfield on Saturday, but Daniel Sturridge is not expected to feature.

Sturridge has recently returned to training, having spent the last four months sidelined with various injuries.

Rodgers gave the latest fitness update at his pre-match press conference ahead of the FA Cup fourth round tie.

“Joe Allen has been back and trained this week, which has been great.

“Glen Johnson has had a good week’s training, so he’ll be available. Mario has trained as well, so he is available.”

Rodgers added: “We’re still waiting [on Sturridge]. He’s still working, but he won’t be available for the weekend.

“Brad [Jones] is still out and won’t be available and Jon [Flanagan] is not part of the squad as of yet.”
