He's Back: Big boost for Klopp as 'brilliant' €28m attacker is cleared for Liverpool return

After several weeks of injury issues, Liverpool finally have some good news ahead of Sunday's trip to Bournemouth.

According to Sky Sports:

"Adam Lallana is back in full training. Lallana was cleared to join the rest of the Reds squad on Thursday for the first time since he suffered a groin injury earlier this month".

Sky Sports claims that two other players have also been passed fit:

"Liverpool will have Roberto Firmino and Divock Origi fit for the Bournemouth game: Firmino was left out of the Leeds win as a precaution, while a knock suffered by Origi is not serious".

After almost a month out, Lallana - recently hailed by Jurgen Klopp for his 'brilliant' performances - is obviously lacking full match fitness, so he'll surely be on the bench for Sunday's game.

Origi and Firmino will surely start the game, though, and after two goals in two games, it makes sense to keep Origi in the team to capitalise on his growing momentum.

Possible team for Sunday (with Lallana on the bench):

------------ Karius
Clyne -- Lovren - Matip -- Milner
---- Can ---- Hendo -- Wijnaldum
---- Mane -- Firmino -- Origi

(With Firmino and Origi possibly alternating positions).
