Jurgen Klopp is set to be handed a triple injury boost ahead of Liverpool’s game against Southampton at Anfield this weekend.

Key trio Jordan Henderson, Adam Lallana and Sadio Mane could all be available for Saturday afternoon’s clash.

Henderson withdrew from the England squad for their friendlies against Germany and Brazil due to a thigh injury.

Mane meanwhile withdrew from Senegal’s squad with a hamstring problem, after playing 90 minutes in a 2-0 win over South Africa.

The ex-Saints man reportedly suffered a slight reoccurrence of his previous hamstring issue, but it is not expected to be serious.

Lallana is yet to play a game this season due to a thigh injury, but according to the Liverpool Echo he could feature on Saturday.

The midfielder made an appearance in a behind-closed-doors friendly at Melwood on Tuesday, alongside Joel Matip and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain.

The 28-year-old has spent three months on the sidelines and is expected to join Simon Mignolet, Danny Ward, Dejan Lovren, Joe Gomez, Trent Alexander-Arnold and Ben Woodburn who are all also due back in the squad.

The Echo reports that Alberto Moreno, Emre Can, Georginio Wijnaldum and Marko Grujic are set to return later this week.
