Adam Lallana back available for Liverpool’s next match

Adam Lallana should be available for Liverpool’s next match after returning to full training following seven games on the sidelines with a groin injury.

The 30-year-old midfielder has played just three minutes of first-team action this season and started just three times in the entirety of last season.

His latest injury was picked up while training with England during the last international break, despite not actually being in Gareth Southgate’s squad.

The return of the former Southampton man could boost Jurgen Klopp‘s midfield options, particularly with the current options lacking much of a goalscoring threat and James Milner expected to miss around a month with the injury he picked up against Man City on Sunday.

Liverpool travel to Huddersfield a week on Saturday when the Premier League action returns, before hosting bottom club Cardiff City at Anfield a week later.

Lallana’s last start for Liverpool was home to FC Porto back in March, while his last goal was against Middlesbrough in May 2017.
