Liverpool’s Shelvey set to train with England squad

Liverpool midfielder Jonjo Shelvey is set to train with the England squad this week following a knee injury to Frank Lampard that could see the Chelsea man miss Friday’s World Cup qualifier with San Marino.

Shelvey, 20, is a regular in the national side’s Under-21 side. However, he has been banned for their European Championship play-off first-leg clash against Serbia on Friday.

Three Lions manager Roy Hodgson has decided that – in the absence of the Chelsea star – Shelvey will train with the senior side instead, but he will return to the youth set-up before their second-leg clash in Serbia.

The former Charlton man has been a regular in Brendan Rodgers’ new-look Liverpool side this season, and has already contributed three goals in all competitions for the Reds.

He will be hoping to continue his form in the coming weeks at Anfield, and should return to action for his side in their next Premier League fixture at home to Reading on 20 October after completing a three-match ban after being red carded against Manchester United.
