Liverpool Handed Double Injury Boost Ahead Of Bournemouth Trip
Liverpool have been handed a double injury boost with both Adam Lallana and Roberto Firmino set to return to the squad for Sunday’s trip to Bournemouth
Liverpool have been handed a double injury boost with both Adam Lallana and Roberto Firmino set to return to the squad for Sunday’s trip to Bournemouth, according to the Metro.
Lallana has been on the sidelines since suffering a groin injury during England’s 2-2 friendly draw with Spain at Wembley during the international break earlier this month.
The 28-year-old has missed Liverpool’s last three matches in all competitions including last weekend’s 2-0 win over Sunderland and Tuesday night’s EFL Cup quarter final win over Leeds United.
However, the Metro claim that Lallana has been back in full training at Melwood this week and is expected to be in the Liverpool squad that travels to the south coast this weekend.
In a double boost, the newspaper also says that Firmino is set to return to the squad after missing the midweek League Cup victory over Leeds with a minor calf injury.
The Brazilian international sustained the problem during the closing stages of last weeks win over Sunderland but is now set to be back in contention to face Bournemouth on Sunday.
The news of Lallana and Firmino’s return will come as a welcome boost to Jurgen Klopp after Philippe Coutinho was cruelly ruled out for five-to-six weeks with ankle ligament damage which he suffered last weekend.
Divock Origi is also expected to be passed fit despite picking up a minor knock on Tuesday night but Sheyi Ojo and Danny Ings remain unavailable with long-term injuries.
Liverpool head to the Vitality Stadium this weekend sitting second in the Premier League table and just one point adrift of leaders Chelsea so the Merseysiders will be desperate to keep the pressure on with another three points on Sunday.
