Liverpool’s Adam Lallana is said to be ready to make his competitive debut after returning to full fitness following a knee injury he suffered during pre-season, Mirror reports.
After the 26-year-old completed a behind closed doors friendly against Wolves, Brendan Rodgers believes that the attacking midfielder is ready to take part in the club’s upcoming match against Aston Villa.
With team mate Daniel Sturridge likely to miss the upcoming clash after picking up a thigh injury, Lallana is tipped to take his place in the starting line up.
Rodgers was given the task of selected whether the former Southampton man or the likes of new signing Lazar Markovic was the player who would replace Sturridge, who is believed to be out of actions for about two or three more weeks.
However, the England international is the likely candidate as he was going through various attacking routines with main striker Mario Balotelli as the pair prepare to face Villa.
