Alberto Moreno is named in Liverpool's starting lineup for tonight's FA Cup fourth-round tie against West Bromwich Albion, while Jordan Henderson returns to the bench.

Alberto Moreno has been named in Liverpool's starting lineup for this evening's FA Cup fourth-round tie against West Bromwich Albion.

The Spanish full-back comes in for his first appearance since the beginning of December after recovering from an ankle injury.

Moreno is one of three changes to the Liverpool side that went down 1-0 to Swansea City on Monday night, with Simon Mignolet and Trent Alexander-Arnold also included from the off.

Jordan Henderson is back in the matchday squad this evening following a month-long layoff, meanwhile, but there is no place for Inter Milan-linked striker Daniel Sturridge.

Further forward, Mohamed Salah, Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mane once again lead the Reds' forward line, while Emre Can has been handed the captain's armband.

In terms of the visitors, boss Alan Pardew has also made three alterations from the 1-1 draw away to Everton last time out, as Allan Nyom, Jake Livermore and Hal Robson-Kanu all return to the fold.

Ahmed Hegazi, Matt Phillips and Salomon Rondon make way for Albion, who are likely to go with a 4-5-1 formation spearheaded by Jay Rodriguez.

The Baggies are unbeaten in three previous FA Cup ties against Liverpool, but they have failed to win any of the last nine meetings overall.

Liverpool: Mignolet; Alexander-Arnold, Matip, Van Dijk, Moreno; Can, Wijnaldum, Oxlade-Chamberlain; Mane, Salah, Firmino
Subs: Ward, Lovren, Gomez, Milner, Henderson, Ings, Solanke

West Bromwich Albion: Foster; Nyom, Evans, Dawson, Gibbs; Robson-Kanu, Livermore, Barry, Krychowiak, Brunt; Rodriguez
Subs: Myhill, Hegazi, Yacob, Phillips, McClean, Burke, Rondon
