Jürgen Klopp has revealed Adam Lallana will be available for selection when Liverpool take on Premier League leaders Chelsea at Anfield on Tuesday.
But the Reds manager says he could still be without the services of Nathaniel Clyne, while Ovie Ejaria is set for a stint on the sidelines after sustaining an ankle ligament injury.
Lallana missed out on the weekend defeat to Wolverhampton Wanderers after sustaining a deep cut on his leg in the preceding fixture against Southampton, while Clyne was also absent from the squad after failing to overcome a rib/abdominal problem.
Discussing the pair’s chances of returning to action at a press conference to preview tomorrow’s game, Klopp told reporters: “Lallana trained, Clyney no. Adam is fine for selection and with Clyney we have to see again.
“It’s difficult [with Clyne] – we would love to force it but we can’t so we have to wait.
“Yesterday, he made a running session with [Andreas] Kornmayer, so it’s about adapting more and more to the pain level he obviously has.
