Lallana could take to the field for the first time for his new club.
There is some good news for Liverpool ahead of the Premier League clash with Aston Villa on Saturday as new £25m signing Adam Lallana is in line to make his debut for the club, according to the Mirror.
Lallana signed from Southampton in the summer, but after suffering a knee injury during the Reds’ pre-season tour of the USA has failed to make an appearance for his new side.
However, after playing a closed doors friendly against Wolverhampton Wanderers earlier in the week, manager Brendan Rodgers is happy that the 26-year-old is ready to go into his starting XI against Villa.
It’s a timely comeback for Lallana as well as his club and national teammate Daniel Sturridge has just been ruled out for around three weeks with a thigh problem.
Sturridge suffered the injury whilst on international duty with England – something the midfielder was excluded from because of his own fitness issues – and could well miss the Merseysiders’ next five matches.
Therefore Lallana could join fellow new signing Mario Balotelli and Raheem Sterling in a three-man attack as Rodgers reverts back to a 4-3-3 in the absence of his 25-year-old striker.
