Advantage Klopp? Howe admits Bournmouth are terrified of facing 'gifted' €28m Liverpool star

Bournemouth boss Eddie Howe has admitted that he fears one of Liverpool's most improved attacking players.

In his pre-match press conference today, Howe - whose Bournemouth team host the Reds on Sunday - told reporters:

"I was aware of Adam Lallana way back. You could see he was very creative and technically gifted. We'd prefer not to see him on Sunday."

Well, it's bad news for Howe, as Lallana seems certain to feature on Sunday. According to Sky Sports:

"Adam Lallana is back in full training. He 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".

Jurgen Klopp also confirmed today:

"Adam has been training since Thursday; yesterday was the first session and he looked good. We need to see how he reacts to the intensity of the training yesterday – it was quite intense for him, but all good. Having him back is cool".

Howe may catch a break, though. After almost a month out, Lallana will not be 100% match fit, so it's likely that he'll start the game on the bench.
