The Reds look to continue their fine run of form with a trip to the south coast to take on Eddie Howe’s impressive Bournemouth side, buoyed by the inclusion of Lallana.

The 28-year-old missed Liverpool’s recent clashes with Southampton, Sunderland and Leeds United with a groin injury, but returned to training on Thursday and has been passed fit to join the substitutes.

Jurgen Klopp has made six changes to the side that won 2-0 at home to Leeds on Tuesday night, with Loris Karius among those to reclaim his place, taking his position between the sticks.

Nathaniel Clyne, Lucas Leiva, Dejan Lovren and James Milner start ahead of Karius in defence, with Ragnar Klavan dropping to the bench.

Joel Matip misses out, with the centre-back having suffered a minor ankle injury.

In midfield, Jordan Henderson joins Emre Can and Georginio Wijnaldum, as Klopp perseveres with his 4-3-3 system.

With both Philippe Coutinho (ankle) and Daniel Sturridge (calf) injured, Divock Origi leads the line in attack, having scored the opening goals against both Sunderland and Leeds.

The Belgian is given experienced support, with Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino set to take up their places out wide, showcasing the strength in Klopp’s squad.

Joining Mignolet, Klavan and Lallana on the substitutes’ bench are Alberto Moreno, Trent Alexander-Arnold, Ovie Ejaria and Ben Woodburn.
