With Liverpool, not in the best of form, the absence of Adam Lallana has been sorely felt. The England international has not featured this season at all after suffering an injury in pre-season that threatened to make him miss a huge chunk of the season, but we have been boosted by news that the former Southampton captain will be available for selection in Mid-November, which will ensure that manager, Jurgen Klopp has one of his favourite players to help us in our run of 13 games in 44 days, while you can also book down your bets with bookies free bet ahead of Lallana return to the Premier League.

Lallana picked up a thigh injury in pre-season and coupled with the situation of Phillipe Coutinho at the beginning of the season, we were without two of our best players from last season at the start of the season. The Skysports reports that the club have sent Lallana to Qatar to meet with a specialist to fast track his total recovery from the injury. A number of players, most notably Sadio Mane have picked up injuries while summer arrival, Alex Oxlade Chamberlain has done nothing so far to suggest he is worth the £35m we shelled out on him in the summer.

Lallana would have added balance to the midfield with his close control, movement and ball use sorely missing in our games since the Englishman’s abesence. Next month will see him return to the side which will be in the middle of a run of games that will be crucial to how our campaign will pan out. Our next game is against high-flying Manchester United this weekend, which Lallana will miss of course, but his presence in that game would have made United manager, Mourinho have some sleepless nights.

The 29 year old attacking midfielder is a player that can play anywhere across the front three behind the striker. His class on the ball is never in doubt, and his return is anticipated by us all. Last term, his soccer cleat registered 8 goals and 7 assists in what was a fruitful individual campaign for him.
