Liverpool handed massive boost ahead of trip to Sevilla in Champions League

Adam Lallana has been included in the Liverpool squad travelling to Spain for the Champions League clash with Sevilla on Tuesday.

The England midfielder, yet to play in a competitive game this season, has been stepping up his recovery from a thigh injury.

Jurgen Klopp's men have lacked a bit of creativity in the centre of the park so far this season, and that's mainly down to the absence of Lallana, who was instrumental for the Reds last season.

Despite the signing of Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain from Arsenal in the summer, Klopp has still opted to use the likes of Emre Can, Jordan Henderson, and Georginio Wijnaldum in the centre of the park, all whom lack the creativity that Lallana brings.

The former Southampton man isn't the only injury news for Liverpool, however, as they head out to Spain.

Defender Joel Matip does not feature after he was absent from Saturday’s 3-0 Premier League victory over the Saints due to a groin problem.

Another man included in the 23-man squad – announced by the Merseyside club on their official website on Monday – is striker Danny Ings, who has made only one first-team appearance so far this term.

The former Burnley man has been riddled with injuries ever since completing his switch to Anfield, so he'll be hoping those days are behind him once and for all.

Liverpool currently top Champions League Group E with eight points, one more than second-placed Sevilla, and will qualify for the next round with a win on Tuesday, or with a draw if Spartak Moscow lose at home to Maribor.

Jurgen Klopp’s Reds head into the contest at the Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan Stadium on a winning streak that extended to four matches in all competitions with the result against Southampton.

The only game Sevilla have not won in their last five was a 2-1 defeat at Barcelona.
