Adam Lallana is set to miss a return to St. Mary’s on Saturday after suffering a flair up of a groin injury which kept him out for 12 days earlier in the season, say the Mail. The attacking midfielder has been in superb form, with two goals in two games for England before being forced off against Spain.
It will be the first game that Lallana has missed all season if he is unavailable this weekend with Georgino Wijnaldum likely to take advantage.
Steven Gerrard remains in talks with the club over a comeback with a coaching role in Alex Inglethorpe’s Academy the most likely option as he is keen to avoid being given a symbolic role and wants to play an important part in developing young players, say Metro.
However, former Reds boss Brendan Rodgers has played down speculation linking him with a move to Celtic Park for a reunion, saying:
“I never speculate or speak about players coming into the club… The only thing I would say with regards to Steven, he has been an incredible player. I had him for a number of years at Liverpool and he was absolutely brilliant… He decided to go to America and I’m sure he has had a good spell there. Steven will sit down now and come back and decide what he wants to do. In terms of the speculation, I’m not sure where it’s come from.”
Other players travelling back to Merseyside did so joined by Manchester City and Paris-Saint Germain players who happen to be their international teammates after the three clubs split the £120,000 cost of a private jet flight from Lima, where Brazil played Peru, to get Phillipe Coutinho and Roberto Firmino back to England as quickly as possible.
The Brazilians were on form for their national team and are now being rushed back to try to get them as much training as possible before Saturday’s clash with Southampton, say the Daily Mail.
