Adam Lallana is back in full training ahead of Liverpool's trip to Bournemouth on Nissan Super Sunday, live on Sky Sports.

Lallana was cleared to join the rest of the Reds squad on Thursday for the first time since he suffered a groin injury during England's 2-2 draw with Spain earlier this month.

And the midfielder now has a chance of returning at the Vitality Stadium this weekend as Jurgen Klopp adjusts to the absence of Philippe Coutinho.

Coutinho is out for five weeks with an ankle injury, but Klopp insists his squad "can handle" the loss of the Brazilian and a Lallana's availability would soften the blow.

The Liverpool manager will have Roberto Firmino and Divock Origi fit for the Bournemouth game: Firmino was left out of the EFL Cup win over Leeds as a precaution, while a knock suffered by goalscorer Origi in the same game is not serious.
