Midfielder Adama Lallana is back in the matchday squad against Sevilla and could very well feature in the starting XI versus Chelsea on Saturday. Lallana has missed the whole of the current season with a serious knee injury but is now back in training.
Jurgen Klopp said that the English International has been training for the past couple of days and is in line to make a comeback.
Kloop said, “Adam is in training, but now [only] since three days, four days,”
“It’s fantastic that he’s back, he’s lost nothing. But in the next few weeks, we have games [every] three days.
“There’s no rushing it, even though everyone who knows Adam can imagine how ready he is to be part of the squad again. We will see what we’ll do.”
Liverpool are sitting pretty at the top of Group E in the Champions League which might just prompt Klopp to give Lallana a bit of a run-in towards the end of the Sevilla game. This, in turn, will set to platform for the 29-year-old to make a bigger impact when Liverpool take on Chelsea on Saturday.
