Lovren left out of the squad for the UEFA Super Cup

Liverpool have released the names of the 23 players in contention to play on Wednesday evening against Chelsea in the UEFA Super Cup in Istanbul. They are:

Fabinho, Virgil van Dijk, Georginio Wijnaldum, James Milner, Naby Keita, Roberto Firmino, Sadio Mane, Mohamed Salah, Joe Gomez, Adrian, Jordan Henderson, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Adam Lallana, Andy Lonergan, Xherdan Shaqiri, Rhian Brewster, Andy Robertson, Divock Origi, Joel Matip, Ki-Jana Hoever, Caoimhin Kelleher, Trent Alexander-Arnold, Harvey Elliott.

As you can see, Andy Lonergan is there, as is Kelleher who appears to have finally recovered from a broken wrist.

However, there is no Dejan Lovren. The club say his absence is due to illness, but other sources claim talks are ongoing between Liverpool and AS Roma about a potential transfer of the Croatian to the Italy capital. AC Milan appear also to be interested.
