Liverpool Boost: Klopp Offers Positive Update On Key Injured Duo

By on October 31, 2017


Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has offered a positive update on the fitness of Sadio Mane and Adam Lallana as the duo close-in on their return to action.

Mane suffered a hamstring injury while away with the Senegal squad during the international break earlier this month and was ruled out for around six weeks.

The winger has missed Liverpool’s last four games in all competitions and his absence was sorely felt during the games against Manchester United and Tottenham that saw the Reds pick up just one point.

Lallana on the other hand is yet to feature for Liverpool so far this season after sustaining a serious thigh injury shortly before the new campaign began back in early August.

The England international returned to training earlier this month and has been stepping-up his rehabilitation at Melwood as he looks to get himself back in contention for a place in the squad.

Klopp spoke to reporters at his pre-match press conference today ahead of Wednesday night’s Champions League clash with Maribor and he offered a positive update on the duo’s fitness.

While the Reds boss confirmed that Mane and Lallana won’t be involved at Anfield tomorrow night or against West Ham this weekend, he did reveal that Mane should be back in training on Thursday and both players are on course to return after the upcoming international break.

Klopp is quoted as saying by the Mirror.

“It looks good. Sadio had this morning a clearing session before he returns to training.

“Now he’s not in the squad so tomorrow is a down day, then on Thursday he should be in training.

“Adam will be part of team training in the international break. Both of them are in a good way, but not good enough to involve them tomorrow or at West Ham.”

It will be a huge boost for Liverpool when Mane and Lallana are available again as they are two vitally important players so I’m sure Klopp will be praying they don’t suffer any setbacks.

As long as the duo continue to recover well over the coming weeks, then I expect both will be in contention when Liverpool welcome Southampton to Anfield on November 18th.
