Jurgen Klopp reveals huge Adam Lallana,Emre Can injury updates

Published

on

Liverpool duo Emre Can and Adam Lallana could yet play again this season – particularly if the Merseyside club reach the Champions League final.
That’s according to manager Jurgen Klopp.

The Reds have been left light on numbers in midfield after Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain’s season-ending knee injury sustained in the first leg of their European semi-final with Roma, which Liverpool won 5-2 at Anfield.

That leaves Klopp with just three fit senior midfielders in Jordan Henderson, James Milner and Georginio Wijnaldum.

Yet the Liverpool manager is hopeful that Lallana – out for the last month with a hamstring injury – and Can, who has missed their last seven matches, could still return before the season’s end.

Particularly if his charges can secure their place in the Champions League final in Kyiv on May 26.
“Adam is here doing his fitness work,” Klopp revealed in light of the selection dilemma he faces against Stoke City today (12.30pm).

“He’s not injured any more but he’s not fit yet. We hope still that one or two games might be possible for him. We will see.

“I take everything I can get, everything. There is no chance for the weekend [against Stoke], no chance for Wednesday and then it could be difficult [for him to play against Chelsea].

“Maybe possible for Brighton for Adam. We have to see.

“Emre is a little bit further away. His rehab is improving a lot. It is much better, but it is quite close to the end of the season. I haven’t closed any doors on both of them. There is still a possibility.”

Klopp could rotate his squad against Stoke but with Sadio Mane expected to miss out through injury, Mohamed Salah and Roberto Firmino should start in the forward line.

Liverpool need four points from their last three games to make sure of a top-four finish for the second successive Premier League season.
