Alastair Cook says Australia are still favourites to retain the Ashes despite their comprehensive loss in the first test at Cardiff.
Both sides could make changes for the second test at Lord's with England's Moeen Ali struggling with a side injury while Australia will replace Brad Haddin and could drop Shane Watson.
Australia captain Michael Clarke says that he has not been told the team and could not understand why the media had been briefed that Watson would be dropped.
