Harry Kewell is in line to make his Liverpool comeback against Anderlecht on Wednesday.

The Australian international has been named in the squad for the trip to Brussels for the UEFA Champions League clash.

Kewell has not played for Liverpool since the glorious Champions League final win over Milan last season.

The former Leeds man underwent a hernia operation in the summer and Reds boss Rafa Benitez believes he is finally ready for a return to the first team.

"Harry is feeling much better now. He will definitely be travelling with us and could maybe play some part, we will have to assess his fitness before the game," said Benitez.

"If he doesn't figure against Anderlecht then I am sure he will be back playing either at the weekend or the following midweek.

"His return will be a big boost for us. He is the kind of player who can beat players and get in crosses from the by-line from which the likes of Peter Crouch and Fernando Morientes can benefit."
