Liverpool fan favourite set to make dream return vs Southampton

Adam Lallana will reportedly make his Liverpool return in Saturday’s Premier League clash with Southampton.

The England international has not yet represented the Reds this season after picking up a thigh problem during the club’s preparations for the 2017-18 campaign.

According to Sky Sports News, Lallana played in a behind-closed-doors friendly at Liverpool’s training ground on Tuesday, and is expected to return to Jurgen Klopp’s squad for the clash with his former club Southampton.

The 29-year-old, who moved to Anfield in the summer of 2014, scored eight times in 35 appearances for Liverpool last season.

Klopp’s side are currently fifth in the Premier League table – four points off second-placed Manchester United after 11 matches of the season.
