Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers is set to give Adam Lallana his Premier League debut this weekend, according to the Daily Mirror.

The Northern Irishman is set to include Lallana in the starting eleven in replacement of the injured Daniel Sturridge.

Sturridge suffered a thigh injury during England training, ruling him out of the Euro 2016 qualifying game against Switzerland. England went on to ease past Switzerland with a 2-0 victory after a brace from new Arsenal signing Danny Welbeck.
