Adam Lallana: Set for a month on the sidelines

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has revealed Adam Lallana will miss tomorrow’s FA Cup clash with West Brom after picking up an injury.

The England man returned to action last month after missing the start to the season with a hamstring problem.

But the 29-year-old is set for another short spell on the sidelines after Klopp admitted the attacker had picked up a knock and voiced concerns over the player’s stamina levels.

“We have to think about it. Adam Lallana has a little issue and I’m pretty sure he will be out of the next game,” said Klopp.

“Adam [Lallana] had a long injury and needs time again to adapt to the intensity of the Premier League.”

Klopp later revealed that Lallana’s problem was a “small tear”.

“Alberto Moreno is back in training, what do we do? Robbo (Robertson) has played really well but played a lot as well,” added Klopp.

“Milner got a dead leg in training. If he says it’s too painful for training then you know how painful it is!

“Clyne is in a good way, but still isn’t in team training. “

The German boss also admitted he will need to “think about” whether club captain Jordan Henderson plays.

He also confirmed Ragnar Klavan is out but Dejan Lovren is back to face Alan Pardew’s side.

While the Reds boss confirmed that Daniel Sturridge could return to action, and Danny Ings is in line to start.

“He’s in really good shape, but there’s nothing to say at the moment about the lineup,” he said of Ings.

“We’ve had a few players ill, I don’t know. Ings is doing really well, the fact that we don’t send him on loan show what our plans are with him.

“Since the injury it’s been ups and downs. He’s physically completely there, I can’t remember the last session he wasn’t properly involved.

“It’s a good situation for him and for us at the moment.”

Klopp, who has rotated his goalkeepers all season, also confirmed his number one for tomorrow.

“Simon Mignolet will play tomorrow. Danny Ward will play for the youth u23s.

“I really think that all goalkeepers need rhythm, training and playing time. They all have an opportunity to play,” added Klopp.
